letter to editor stock art typewriter and notebook

My recent letter to the editor ("We should be engaged in conversation," May 27) was inaccurate and I’d like to apologize for the confusion the letter caused.

The 2019 operating levy was $550 per pupil unit. My mistake was to say it would have been the yearly tax on a $350,000 home.

If the operating levy would have passed in 2019 the taxed amount on a $350,000 home at that time would have been $265, or $22 per month.
