MONTROSE – The results of the Aug. 4 election are official. Montrose voters supported the renewal of 18 mills levied on non-homestead properties for operating Montrose Community Schools.

The votes came in with a strong 296 yes votes, more than 73 percent, to 109 no votes.

The millage will generate $610,000 for school operations, which is approximately five percent of the school district’s annual budget. This is millage that could only be levied with voter approval.

Superintendent Dr. Edward Graham said, “This tax is on non-homestead property only and does not apply to your primary place of residence. For a business or other commercial property with a $200,000 taxable value ($400,000 market value), the tax would be $3,600 ($200,000 x .018 mills). This millage is not levied against a family’s primary residence.”
