Morris Area School Board approves preliminary levy


MORRIS - The Morris Area School Board voted Monday to certify the maximum amount for the district's 2013 preliminary levy - an increase of 1.68 percent over 2012.

The maximum levy amount is set by the Department of Education, and amounts to a proposed levy of about $3.2 million. From this point forward, the board can chose to lower the levy, but they won't be able to raise it.

The board will set their final levy amount after a Truth in Taxation hearing on Dec. 17, 2012.
