    Question: HOW MUCH WILL THE TECHNOLOGY LEVY COST A PROPERTY OWNER?
    Answer:
    The High School Technology Levy of $500,000 equates to approximately 3.45 mills. This levy is estimated to cost a homeowner approximately $4.65 per year on a home with a market value of $100,000. This levy, if passed, will be imposed for 10 years and will not be renewed without voter approval. It would replace an existing permanent levy of $75,000 per year.
