ELKHART — Concord Community Schools’ voters will be asked in November to extend the district’s existing operating funding from a previous referendum for eight years but at a lower rate.

If successful, this would reduce the district’s existing tax levy, previously approved in 2014, from 40.5 cents to 32 cents for every $100 of net assessed value beginning in 2022.

This is a bit confusing. Are they asking for more money from taxpayers or reducing what taxpayers are paying? It sounds like they are actually asking for more money, but disguising it so on the surface it appears the rate is being lowered.

Bottom line without smoke and mirrors - are taxpayers being asked to pay more dollars than they are currently paying?
