Urbana school board approves property tax request

URBANA — The Urbana school board Tuesday approved its final 2013 tax levy, and it will ask for $31.5 million.

Last year, it asked for about $29.1 million, and its tax extension, which usually reflects taxes received, was about $28.7 million. However, the district actually got about $3 million less than that, as the Carle Foundation was exempted from paying property taxes.
