Hebron Voters Approve School Tax Hike
May 7, 2014 — Hebron Schools patrons approved a tax increase referendum for the schools by 23 votes yesterday.
The referendum asked for an increase of 21 cents per $100 assessed valuation. The increase would bring in $479,000 over seven years and increase taxes for a $155,000 home by about $144 a year.
If it failed, four teaching positions would be cut and other reductions would come to meet reduced state support.
Nine school districts in Indiana posed referenda in Tuesday’s primary elections, to raise taxes for school funding projects. As StateImpact Indiana’s Claire McInerny reports, almost all of the referenda passed.
