Fisher school board OKs levy

FISHER — The school board has approved its 2014 tax levy. At $5.607 million, the levy is a 10 percent increase over this year. But tax caps limit it to a 1.7 percent increase based on the consumer price increase.

Superintendent Barb Thompson anticipates a tax rate of up to $5.25 compared with last year's $5.20. She is estimating the equalized assessed value of the district to be $66 million, up over $240,000 from last year and due mostly to a near 10 percent increase in the value of farmland.

Also the board approved Chelsie Logan as a long-term special education teacher substitute. The teacher for whom she is subbing has extended her first semester maternity leave to a full year. The board wanted someone to fill in who has special education certification and Logan does and so will finish out the school year.
