Income tax request: Genoa schools to be on May ballot
Written by Larry Limpf

The Genoa school board has approved a resolution to place a 1 percent income tax request on the May ballot.
 
Superintendent Dennis Mock said the district will face a deficit of about $1 million by June 30, 2012 if revenues don’t increase or expenditures aren’t reduced.
 
A 1 percent income tax would only be levied on earned income and not on pensions, interest or dividends, Social Security or disability benefits, or child support payments.
 
Mock said the income tax would roughly approximate 5.3 mills in property taxes in revenues.
 
Board members plan to use their next meeting to come up with a strategy for not seeking the renewal of some existing millage on residents’ tax bills.

 
Ballot issue this year for Lake schools?

For some insight into how the area’s housing market is faring Jeff Carpenter need look no further than the local property tax receipts for the Lake Local School District.
 
It’s not a pretty picture: In fiscal year 2008, which began July 1, 2007, the district received about $6.2 million – roughly $685,000 more than the year before. But by fiscal year 2009 a drop in local tax revenue had begun and by the end of the year the district received only $6.04 million.
 
In the first half of fiscal year 2010, the district is $16,372 below where it was in 2009 in local revenues.
 
“The county auditor is telling us that property tax delinquencies among homeowners are three times higher than normal,” Carpenter, the school district’s treasurer, said last week. “It’s been showing up in our revenues and I’m sure other districts are seeing the same thing.”

 
Oregon council to vote on charges for new sanitary sewer

Oregon city council on Monday will vote to accept the final tap-in charges for the installation of a sanitary sewer that will serve several parcels in the area of Lallendorf Road and Cedar Point Development Park.
 
“Along the way, it serves 11 properties,” said Finance Director Kathy Hufford at a Committee of the Whole meeting last Monday. “There is no requirement for property owners to tap in. But when they need to tap in due to septic failure, or they just want to tap in, the fee they have to pay is listed in the ordinance.”
 
Those fees range from a low of $5,957.39 to a high of $61,368.28.
 
Councilman Jerry Peach said the project “is of great benefit to property owners.”
