Argument for the Additional Voted Local Levy Tax

The Tooele County Board of Education is proposing to increase the voted local levy an additional .001 per dollar of the taxable value of the taxable property within the District. In 1998, the public voted in favor of allowing the District to levy a voted local levy of .0006 where it has remained since. If the proposed increase of .001 passes by the majority of voters this November it would allow the District to levy up to .0016 in the voted local levy.
