Citizens Committee for Hudson Schools seeking volunteers
The Citizens Committee for Hudson Schools (CCHS) is gearing up for a Permanent Improvement Fund Levy (PIF) campaign this spring with a May 2 vote at the general election. The PIF vote is a RENEWAL vote at a rate not to exceed 1.5 mills for each dollar of valuation for 5 years, first due in January 2018. All PIF dollars must be used for expenditures that will last five years or longer including technology, heating and cooling systems, school safety and security systems, building maintenance and repair and transportation. Funds from this levy can NOT be used for operating purposes including salaries and benefits.
This renewal levy will result in no new taxes. The cost for a home appraised at $200,000 is $91.88 per year.
