BDP School Tax Rate Is Lowest Since 2014

Issue Date: November 5, 2020

The handful of electors present for the Beecher-Dunbar-Pembine School District budget hearing and annual meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 28, adopted a 2020-2021 school tax levy of $3,537,379, up just $41,075 from last year.

Although the overall budget and tax levy are up slightly, the resulting property tax rate is $12.49 per $1,000 of equalized value. This is down from $12.87 last year and and $13.26 the year before, and is the lowest tax rate for the district since 2014. Equalized value of all properties in the district is $283,220,300, up from $271,578,900 last year, which helped bring the tax rate down.

The budget hearing was called to order at 5:30 p.m. by School Board Vice President Brian Bousley. On hand were District Administrator Andy Space, Business Manager Susan Johnson, Board members Bousley, Tina Duenweg, Ryan Berger, and Mandy McLain and two members of the public. Board member Vicki Fick was absent.

Johnson explained the 2020-21 budget, including an explanation of Funds, Revenues and Expenditures. She also explained the Revenue Limit calculation, how the School Levy is calculated and the Revenue Limit Worksheet.

There were no questions from the board or public, and the hearing was adjourned.

The annual meeting was called to order by Space at 5:50 p.m.

Berger nominated Bousley to chair the meeting, and received a second from Vince Czahor. There were no other nominations and vote for Bousley was unanimous.

Motion to accept the agenda as printed was made by Duenweg, seconded by McLain and approved. Also approved with no opposing votes were minutes of the 2019 Annual Meeting and Budget Hearing.

On motions by Czahor, seconded by Diane White school board member's salaries for the 2020-2021 school term were set at $100 per meeting for Regular, Workshop and any special meetings, and the school board was authorized to pay for actual and necessary expenses of a school board member per School Board Policy 0146 when traveling outside of the school district in performance of duties and reimbursement of a school board member for actual loss of earnings when duties require the member to be absent from regular employment.

There was no State Trust Fund Loan needed this year so no action was taken on that agenda item.

Motion then was made by Duenweg, seconded by Berger and approved without dissent that there be levied on all taxable property of the School District of Beecher-Dunbar- Pembine a tax of $3,502,379.00 for General Fund for the 2020-2021 school year.

Next came a motion made by Duenweg, seconded by McLain and approved without dissent that a tax of $35,000 be levied on all properties in the district for the Community Service Fund for the 2020-2021 school year.

Motion made that the Beecher-Dunbar-Pembine Board has a temporary borrowing limit of $750,000 placed upon it for the 2020-2021 school year was approved with all in favor.

Also approved by unanimous vote was a motion that the 2020-2021 school term must include at least 437 hours of direct pupil instruction in kindergarten, at least 1,050 hours of direct pupil instruction in grades 1 to 6 and at least 1,137 hours of direct pupil instruction in grades 7 to 12 as defined in Wisconsin State Statutes.

Electors also authorized the board to take any legal action necessary for the prosecution and defense of any action or proceedings in which the school district is interested; provide textbooks under conditions established as policy, and operate a school food service program.

There was unanimous agreement that an official newspaper and official radio station would not be named.

Also approved without dissent was a motion giving administration authority to sell surplus items and dispose of unneeded textbooks.

With no other business brought up, those present agreed that the 2021 Annual Meeting date and time will be scheduled by the Board at a later date and the meeting was adjourned.
