At the December 13, 2023 School Board Meeting, the Garfield Re-2 Board of Directors certified the mills for the 2024 school year. This is an action that is required by the State of Colorado at the end of each year - typically prior to December 15 - before property taxes are assessed in the following year.
The total mill levy for the Garfield Re-2 School District for 2024 is 20.856 - a reduction of 4.460 mills from 2023. This is possible because of the significant increase in assessed valuation in the District explained Garfield Re-2 Chief Financial Consultant Jeff Blanford.
