Liberty school board to consider levy in 2014

LIBERTY — The state-mandated commission that is overseeing Liberty schools’ finances wants the school board to ask voters for a new tax levy.

Paul Marshall, commission chairman, said at its meeting Wednesday that a new levy would likely be a hard sell to voters. But the district has to either make cuts or raise revenues to offset projected deficits in its new five-year forecast.

Marshall said he recommends a levy up to five mills. A mill generates $223,000 a year.

The commission voted unanimously to pass the forecast.
