  • The Colona School Board Approved the 2016 Colona School District Tax Levy as presented.  The approved 2016 tax levy, through a Property Tax Abatement Resolution passed during the November meeting, will lower the Colona School District tax rate from $3.91 to $3.89.  The Tax Abatement will utilize Henry County 1-cent sales tax revenue to off-set $69,350 in Bond and Interest on Alternate Revenue Bonds the district sold in 2015 to make improvements in the school kitchen and cafeteria.  The Property Tax Abatement will lower the 2016 tax levy by 1.04 percent from 2015 and will save approximately $20 on a home with an Equalized Assessed Value of $100,000.
