Waterloo to Vote on New Tax Levy
WATERLOO (AP) -- Voters in Waterloo will decide in November whether to approve a tax levy to support a museum district that includes several historical sites.
The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports the November 5th referendum places before voters a levy of 27 cents per $1,000 of taxable property value. It would add about $14.19 to the annual property tax bill of a home assessed at $100,000.
If approved, the tax would raise $630,000 a year for the museum district which includes the Grout Museum of History & Science, Rensselaer Russell House Museum, Bluedorn Science Imaginarium, Snowden House and the Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum.
The Grout Museum District is a private, nonprofit organization that relies on donations, grants, admissions and gift shop sales to cover its $1.25 million annual budget.
