Centralia City School Board Approves 2012 Tax Levy

By Will Doolin, WJBD News

The Centralia City School Board approved their 2012 Tax Levy Tuesday evening. Superintendent Dave Rademacher says the district will be levying at 4.47-percent. The amount levied comes to $3.4 million, about $500,000 higher than last year. He states the recommendation came as Clinton County is currently in the process of reassessing their property values, which will affect their EAV amount. Rademacher says their EAV for Marion County increased by $700,000, which is considered less than one-percent. 

In other Board action, the Board approved submitting their hazardous zone worksheet to IDOT. Rademacher says some costs were shifted as students were moved around and hazardous zones were reassessed. He states the worksheet will be sent to IDOT. If not all areas are approved, the district will readjust to accommodate those areas affected. Board approved the expulsion of two-students, as well as consent agenda items and the treasurer's report. 

In personnel action, the Board approved the hiring of part-time individual paraprofessional Lisa Perry, and part-time temporary title one paraprofessionals Kenya Stacey and Tamera McClelland.
