MILL LEVY CERTIFICATION
On December 11, 2009, the Dolores School District Board of Education met to certify the mill levy for next year. Since the Colorado Legislature voted to freeze property tax rates for per-pupil operating revenues, the total program rate remained at 20.883 mills. With an abatement mill of 0.052 and a voter approved override to give the District $390,000 each year adding 6.432 mills, the total general fund final mill is 27.367. This is a decrease to the total general fund mills of 0.839. The Bond Redemption fund dropped 0.331 to a total of 4.657 mills for next year. The overall decrease in mills is -1.170.
