Owatonna School Board Passes Tax Levy Decrease
The Owatonna School Board approved a tax levy for the 2022-23 school year at their December meeting that showed a decrease of 1.5%. In the district's January e-newsletter, they state, "The largest portion of the school district tax is a result of the community's support of the bond and operating levies. The total school district levy will decrease by 1.5%. In comparison, the state average for school district property tax levies is increasing by 4.5%."
