The Wise County Appraisal District has released Paradise ISD’s preliminary 2014 property values – and not much has changed.
Consequently, the district expects no major changes in property tax revenue for next year.
PISD is looking at total taxable values of $392,236,311 for next year, compared to $388,517,443 last year. The numbers came from Chief Appraiser Mickey Hand to the board of trustees, which held its first of several budget workshops Monday night.
Property values are a key piece of information in the budget planning process.
Breaking the preliminary data down shows real property values, industrial/utility values and mineral values are all up, but personal property values are down nearly 50 percent compared to 2013 numbers, negating most of the increases in other areas.
Also on the agenda:
- The board approved the district emergency operation plan.
- Breakfast and lunch prices for 2014-2015 will remain the same as the previous year.
- The board offered reasonable assurance of employment for auxiliary and para-professional employees.
- Trustees Doug Bryant and Homer Mundy will hand out diplomas to Paradise ISD seniors during the 2014 graduation ceremony.
