The Jordan School District Board of Education will hold a Truth in Taxation hearing on Tuesday, August 2 at 6 p.m. at Riverton High School to consider increasing taxes. This will be an opportunity for public comment on the tax increase.
- Why Raise Taxes?
- The money will be used for teacher and staff pay.
- The money will provide additional supports for teachers in the classroom.
- Property taxes are not adjusted for inflation and the District’s operating costs continue to rise each year.
The tax increase will amount to $43 per year per $100,000 home value. That is approximately $22 a month on a home valued at $600,000.
Jordan works hard to use resources efficiently and to provide a world-class education for students and a supportive work environment for all employees.
