HOLLEY – With school tax bills soon to go out, Holley district residents can expect to see smaller tax bills. The Board of Education approved a tax levy on Monday that cuts taxes by 10.6 percent.

The school district in 2013-14 set a tax levy for $7,541,779. That will drop by $800,000 to $6,741,780 for the new school year.

“We are very happy to provide our residents with some tax relief and we are grateful for the support that our community has provided and continues to provide the district,” said Robert D’Angelo, the district superintendent.

Holley moved to cut taxes after a state comptroller’s report said the district had too much money in its reserves.
