Cost of school proposal $86 million or more PDF Print E-mail

PW-S survey to ask residents if they support $25 million for elementary schools, $61 to $72 million for Port High

    The most ambitious school improvement proposal in the history of the Port Washington-Saukville School District — renovating and enlarging three elementary schools and demolishing 70% of Port Washington High School and rebuilding on the current site — would cost $86 million, according to a survey that was approved by the School Board Monday and will be mailed to district residents next week ahead of a possible referendum.

    If approved, the cost to each taxpayer in the district is estimated to be $461 annually per $100,000 of property value. The owner of a $200,000 home — roughly the average property value in the City of Port Washington — would pay an additional $922 annually in school property taxes for years to come.

    If, however, district residents and the School Board choose the more expensive Port High option — building a new school on a site that has yet to be determined — the total cost of the projects is estimated to be $97 million.

    That would cost each taxpayer $513 annually per $100,000 of property value. The owner of a $200,000 home would pay an additional $1,026 a year in school property taxes.
