Millage Proposal

"Good Education at no Extra Cost"

The Board of Education have passed a resolution to ask the voters approval of a millage proposal at the regular school election to be held on June 8, 1964. The proposal is not a request for additional millage but a request that the present millage rate be continued for two years. Briefly, the proposal will request a levy of 3 mills for 2 years, 1964 and 1965. The present voted millage has expired.

Kingston has been allocated 9 mills by the Tax Allocation Board. This would bring in $40,707. A favorable vote on the millage proposal would bring in $13,568. The total income from local taxes would be $54,275.

Income from State sources total $157,309. Income from other districts total $22,000. Total income is $233,584.

Budget Expenditures for next year have been pegged at $231,584.

It is apparent that, if the school is to continue to operate in the black, the millage is absolutely essential.
