Property Tax Favorable Among Likely Voters

(Las Vegas, NV) — The Clark County School District will have a very important question on the November ballot.

And if a recent poll is any indication there may be good news for schools across the district.

A property tax increase that would raise anywhere from $669 to $720 million will go to the voters. However, the district sampled 600 likely voters and 55 percent said they would support a tax increase to renovate hundreds of aging schools.

Nine schools are on the list to be completely torn down, but only two will have that done immediately. Rex Bell and Lincoln Elementary are set to be torn down and rebuilt in the near future.

The tax increase is temporary and would sunset in 2018. The average cost to a homeowner who owns a home worth $100 thousand would be about $6.21 a month.
