I called up the Alton Tax Collector and got the rates.
So that is how it compares. Biggest drop, 16 cents is the school portion. The retirement of the Prospect Mountain School building bond reduced a total of 68 cents. Those of you who can remember that far back may recall that in February-March of this year we had quite a few brouhahas about that number because the ACS SAU kept on factoring that reduction in when stating what the new bond would cost us. Read this post and check the newspaper article referenced. So, the school budget did go up, by $0.52 I guess. The -$0.68 help offset it and keep it to -$0.16.
Tax bills will not be mailed until Thursday or Friday of next week, i.e., November 14 or 15, 2013.
Gilmanton tax rate dropped 9.7% from last year. So, if you were looking for a comparison.
