There was a nearly unanimous vote at last night's USD 447 Cherryvale school board meeting concerning exceeding the revenue neutral rate.
The board heard concerns about rising taxes at last night's meeting. Citizens voiced their concerns with the increased mill levy to support Cherryvale schools during the revenue neutral hearing. Board Member Sarah Jones read the proposed motion for the board.
The revenue-neutral rate is a mill rate that would keep the dollar revenue a taxing authority collects the same as it was in the previous year. Other business before the school board at last night's meeting included building reports from school principals and the approval for the district to hold an online surplus property sale.
