Decide Upon The Maximum Mill Levy That You Want For The District

List the proposed maximum property tax mill levy that was calculated in the previous chapter. This amount can be exactly what you want/need to levy to support the district or it could be an adjustable levy. If you are going with an adjustable levy you would use language similar to the following:

  • The board will levy up to 22 mills for the library district

Find out from the clerk and recorder or the treasurer how much this is going to cost a house that is worth $100,000 and a house that is worth $200,000. You need to include this language on your petition and/or in the resolution. If you live in a county with lower property tax values you may also need to calculate the cost of the levy for a house that is worth $50,000.
