Wyoming Public Schools Look for Support Tues.

The Wyoming Public Schools 10-year non-homestead operating millage, a 18-mill operating levy, is up for renewal on the Tuesday, Aug. 2 ballot.

The tax is levied on business property, not principal residences. Homeowners pay nothing on primary residences.

The millage is for general school operating revenue, and represents 12.5 percent of the district’s total general fund revenue, according to information from the district. It generates approximately $6 million annually toward the total $33 million budget.

“These funds are vital for the daily operations of the core services of the district to students. Loss of these funds would be devastating to the schools,” said Superintendent Tom Reeder.
