School 1 Mil Tax Referendum Renewal

Hot Topics – Pros and Cons – School 1 Mil Tax Referendum Renewal
Monday, September 13, noon
Bradenton Women’s Club, 1705 Manatee Ave W


Manatee voters approved a 1 mil tax increase for local schools in 2018. Should we vote to continue this tax?

On Tuesday, Nov. 2, a special election will be held on renewing a one-mill property tax for Manatee Schools.  The school district has used these funds for 2 full years, so facts and figures are now available as to their purpose and results.  In order to avoid the considerable cost of a special election in the future, and to increase voter participation, future renewals will be during Presidential elections.

  • * What was the need for these additional funds and how has the school district used them? What are the current needs?
  • * How are the funds accounted for and monitored?
  • * How did this extra funding improve student outcomes?
  • * Are there other sources to address these needs?

Get answers to these concerns and more.  Panelists to be announced shortly.
