Community College

A tax levy of 20¼ cents per $1,000 of assessed value is used by a community college to pay for its operation. The board of directors may also levy an addition 20¼ cents per $1,000 of assessed value for a maximum of ten years for a specific purpose if approved by voters within the school's district during the school election. This levy can be used for the following purposes:
  • Acquisition of Libraries
  • Building Construction
  • Expansion
  • Improvements
  • Maintenance
  • Payment of Utilitie
  • Purchase of Buildings
  • Purchase of Equipment for Buildings
  • Purchasing Grounds
  • Remodelings
Taxes collected from this levy can only be used for the purpose for which it was approved by the voters.

Equipment Replacement Levy

A Community College Board of Directors can also levy up to an additional 3 cents per $1,000 of assessed value for equipment replacement. This rate may exceed the 3 cent limit if it is used for program sharing between community colleges or for the purchase of instructional equipment. This additional amount cannot cause the entire levy to exceed 9 cents, however.
