Residents of the Kennett Consolidated School District might see their real-estate taxes go up by 2.27 percent under a proposed preliminary budget. School board members voted unanimously at their February meeting to adopt a preliminary budget for 2018–2019.
The $86 million budget would increase Kennett taxes for the average household by $123, according to Board Treasurer Michael H. Finnegan. The budget includes a $714,330 contribution from the district’s fund balance to lower the tax burden on homeowners, Finnegan said.
Proposals in the state budget could mean, if things go well, that the final tax increase could go down to 1.94 percent. The final budget will be adopted in June.
