The USD-457 Board of Education meets in Garden City Monday night beginning at 6 p.m. Board members will consider approval of the school district’s total proposed general fund budget for the fiscal year that began on July 1st at $49,602, 696. The proposed budget calls for a slight increase in the mill levy assessed on property owners who reside in the school district. Garden City Public Schools Finance Director Kathleen Whitley says the proposed budget calls for a slight increase in the mill levy assessed on property owners who reside in the school district. Whitley says the increase will result in a slight bump-up in what property owners pay: $7.94 per $100-thousand of assessed value on residential property. The levy was 49.19 mills last year and is proposed to rise to 49.88 mills in fiscal 2012-2013.
