  • 4A - 2022 Mill Levy

    In response to the recommendations and requests from families and community members, Mapleton’s Board of Education is asking voters to support a $9 million mill levy override on the November 2022 ballot. The board voted unanimously in favor of the measure during a regularly scheduled business meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 23. The mill levy prioritizes school safety and security improvements, including mental health support, enhanced career and technical opportunities for students, competitive pay for teachers and staff, and building maintenance and replacements.

  • What is a mill levy override? 

    Each school district can request additional local funding (up to 25% more) through a local Mill Levy Override (MLO). This funding is generally used for operations, including salaries, staffing, and student programming.

    Mapleton currently receives 9.6% additional funding thanks to previous mill levy overrides. However, neighboring school districts are closer to or at the full 25%, making it difficult for Mapleton to address important safety and security needs, recruit and retain high-quality staff in all schools and departments, and maintain programs and facilities.

  • How much will the mill levy override cost taxpayers in Mapleton?

    Cost to residents of county assessed home value:

    • Per $100K home = $5.40/month
    • Per 100K home = $64.85/year
    • For average home in Mapleton = $24.03/month
    • For average home in Mapleton = $288.36/year
