MARYSVILLE —The Marysville School Board plans to host a couple of meetings to seek comment on two tax proposals that could go to voters in February.
The first meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday at the district’s Educational Service Center in the Board Room, 4220 80th Street NE, Marysville. A second meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. Dec. 4.
The first proposal is a request to replace the district’s maintenance and operations levy, which expires at the end of the 2014 tax year. The levy supports 20 percent of day-to-day school operations. The expiring levy was last approved by voters in 2010.
The district’s finance executive director, Jim Baker, is still fine-tuning calculations based on property values in Snohomish County. He said early estimates indicate that the cost of the proposed replacement four-year levy will be nearly the same as the expiring one.
The second proposal would support student learning through technology. The new proposed four-year technology levy would help all schools upgrade student and staff equipment that enhance learning programs through computers, wireless services and upgraded devices.
The public is invited to attend one of the two scheduled meetings.
After the meetings, the school board plans to decide at their Dec. 9 meeting whether to place both levies on the February 2014 ballot.
