What does “replacement levy” mean?

In 2018, Granger voters approved our current Replacement Educational Programs and Operations Levy. Our current levy expires in December 2021. To continue offering quality education, the school district must submit this levy proposal to voters. The proposed replacement levy would begin after our current one expires; no funds for the replacement levy will be collected until 2022.

Why would the amount I pay go down?

As the Granger area grows, property taxes are spread across a wider tax base, which result in lower taxes for individual homeowners.

 

What is the “estimated rate”?

By law, the levy is set as a total dollar amount to be collected. In 2020, the school district will collect approximately $626,000, as approved by the last levy. That amount is divided amongst all the taxable property owners in Granger.

 

In order to help homeowners plan for how much they will pay, an estimated rate is given. The rate may change because of valuation changes set by the Yakima County. Rates may also be adjusted based upon limitations imposed by law at the time of the levy.
