The Storm Lake School Board is proposing an approximately 27 cent tax increase for the coming year.
Superintendent Bill Kruse delivered a report on the budget estimate for the 2003-04 fiscal year at this week's school board meeting.
Kruse said the levy rate is proposed to increase to $16.65 per $1,000.
There was a 50 cent increase in the current year's budget.
On working with the coming year's budget, the district used an allowable growth rate of 2 percent. The state legislature has indicated that's what it will approve.
