It is actually the County Assessor telling the BOE that they should lower their levy rate because the levy they just voted on is going to generate millions of more dollars than requested. They should drop it by 20% and they would still have more than enough taxpayer money to waste.

Could the local voters have an election to reduce the levy for the BOE or could they file suit that the BOE misrepresented the need and actual cost of the original levy. Sounds like someone was lying about the need of the levy.

Property values went up due to mineral rights. When the BOE requested the Levy they went on a report of past property values because a crystal ball was not available. But now that there are excess funds the levy should be lowered.

Sorry, THE BOE knew exactly what the values were because Mr. Kessler explained it at several meetings and the BOE was advised of this. It is funny that the Marshall County Schools said in the levy vote it needed 16+ million a year to run the schools now they need the extra 6+ million the levy will produce. Let them have the 16+ they levy requested and give the excess back to the taxpayers with lower levy rates.

taxpayers will never see a penny returned.this is why you shouldn't pass levies.the state pays to run these schools.levies are for new cars for the rich and powerful.and free lunches for the same.there isn't a BOE here that "needs" these levies.when was the last time that the air filters in your building were changed?try to get an honest answer out of them.they will lie to you.

The BOE giving money back, thats the best joke of the day. Oh, if we whine long enough they might make some little gesture, type out a press release and the local media will read it to us and pretend its news. Tax break? C'mon stop it, my sides are hurting.
