The tax levy for the 2014-15 school year was set at the Aug. 14 meeting of the Herricks Board of Education, and district residents may be surprised that it’s coming in a bit lower than the amount voters had previously approved.
Assistant Superintendent for Business Helen Costigan initially revealed the Herricks’ tax levy for the coming school year was a 1.73 percent increase. However, she noted that a surplus in the budget could allow the district to establish a lower levy than previously anticipated. The board adopted the new levy, 1.3 percent or $93,325,352.
