For taxpayers, the bottom line of the 2014 proposed Meridian Independent School District budget is a two cent increase in tax rate to $1.34 per $100 property value. For an average home-owner in the school district’s area their property taxes will increase slightly with $5.64 per year. The MISD tax rate is unchanged at $1.04, but to meet the current obligations regarding the school debts, Superintendent Dr. John Horak suggested a two- cent increase at a school board budget workshop Monday, generating $1,463,725 in tax revenue.
