The Mehlville Board of Education unanimously approved the 2018 blended tax rate of $4.1480.

The blended rate is an average rate of the residential, commercial, agricultural and personal property tax rates. The blended rate includes the $0.04 temporary tax for Prop A, which ends in 2025. The tax rates for 2018-2019 by category are as follows:

  • Residential tax rate: $4.0894
  • Commercial tax rate: $4.0605
  • Agricultural tax rate: $4.6206
  • Personal property tax rate: $4.5374

Voters approved Prop A in April 2016, which increased the district’s capital projects fund by 4 cents, with a subsequent reduction in the debt service fund of 4 cents. Prop A has a 10-year sunset, and funds are being used to complete roofing projects throughout the district. To date, Prop A funds have been used for roofing projects at Beasley Elementary, Forder Elementary, Oakville High, Point Elementary, Trautwein Elementary, Washington Middle and Wohlwend Elementary.
