Crowley school district voters passed a measure Wednesday to raise the property tax rate by 13 cents.
The increase will net the school district an extra $7.6 million in operating money, Star-Telegram staff writer Shirley Jinkins reports.
The new total tax rate will be $1.67 per $100 of property value. An owner of a $135,000 home, the average in the Crowley district, will pay an extra $114 a year in property tax. The tax increase passed by a two-thirds vote in the two-county district.
The total between Tarrant and Johnson County voters was 66.1 percent passing to 33.9 percent against.
