Adams Central levy rate to drop

The proposed new levy rate looks like it will be significantly lower for patrons of the Adams Central School District.

The Adams Central Board of Education met in a special budget work session Monday to discuss the proposed 2013-14 budget.

Adams Central Superintendent Shawn Scott said the general fund tax rate could drop by as much as $.25 based on the district's proposed budget. The current tax rate for property owners in the Adams Central School District is $1 per $100 of assessed valution. That could drop to as low as $.75 for the next budget year.

"I will tell you when I saw what valuation was going to do last Tuesday, I figured that our general fund levy would go down at least 10 cents, but it dropped significantly more than that," Scott said. "Overall, I think we're sitting very healthy as a district financially."
