Chuck Kajer, Managing Editor

The New Prague Area Schools will be certifying a preliminary levy at its Monday, Sept. 27, meeting, and according to the district's finance director the levy will likely be lower than last year.

Sandy Linn, the district's finance director, presented initial numbers to the board during a workshop Monday, Sept. 13. She said that as of right now, the district's levy will be down about 5.36 percent from last year. That means on a home valued at $200,000, the school's portion of property taxes will go form $991 to $938.
