Hopkins schools prepare to renew tax

Kayla Deneau, Staff Writer

The Hopkins school district’s 18-mill operating millage is coming up for renewal. It was last passed in February 2013.

School board members Monday, Dec. 1, discussed how long its renewal should be when it goes before voters next year.

The nonhomestead millage is levied on commercial and industrial properties, second homes and some agricultural land. It is not applied to primary residences.

In 2013, the millage was renewed by a 327-71 vote for two years.

The millage collects more than a half-million dollars; in 2013, it was estimated to collect $640,000. The district is allowed to use the revenue for costs such as staff salaries and maintenance and utility costs.
