Total Combined Bond Tax Rates

Total combined tax rate for 2018 will be the same as it currently is. The current tax rate is $5.00 per every $1,000 taxable value. Below is a graph showing the 2018 tax rate and what portion will be spent on supplemental and bond. You can also see by planning on keeping the rate $5.00 per $1,000 that we will be able to grow with the community which is our 20 year plan.
