Madison School Board Passes 2013-2014 Budget, including a 4.5% Property Tax Increase

Jeff Glaze, via a kind reader's email:

The Madison School Board adopted on Monday a $433.6 million budget for the 2013-14 school year.

The budget and levy both passed by 6-1 votes with board member Mary Burke representing the lone no vote.

The $433.6 million budget includes a $260.4 million tax levy. The levy means homeowners will pay $12.03 per $1,000 of assessed value, up 51 cents from last year.

Much more on the Madison School District's 2013-2014 budget, here.

Mr. Glaze's article once again fails to mention Madison's substantial increase in redistributed state tax dollar receipts one year ago... Remarkable. Perhaps a Washington Post style District investigative finance article might one day occur here.
