Ballot Issues:

Sedalia voters will decide on a tax increase of $0.07 to be used for the Sedalia Public Library.  If approved, the funds will go toward building repairs, renovations, and maintenance.  The tax would expire after 25 years.

Some voters in Pettis County will decide if the operating tax levy ceiling of the Knob Noster R-8 School District will be increased to $3.50.  This would allow the district to maintain the current level of Federal Impact Aid.

La Monte R-4 School District’s Board of Education is asking to borrow $950,000 to be used for completing improvements to existing facilities.  Those would include roof replacements at the elementary and high schools, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning unit replacements, and electrical system upgrades.  If approved by voters, the property tax levy is expected to remain unchanged.
