QUESTION Shall current levy supporting the Bowman Museum change to four years beginning 2023 at $0.10 per $1,000 taxable assessed value? This measure may cause property taxes to increase more than three percent. SUMMARY The Bowman Museum is operated by the Crook County Historical Society in an historic building donated for the purpose of a museum. The museum operates on taxes and funding provided by donations, memberships, grants, and retail proceeds. The amount of the current levy will increase from $0.06 cents per thousand of taxable assessed valuation to $0.10 cents per thousand of taxable assessed valuation. For example: A property with a $200,000 taxable assessed value would pay $20 per year. If the levy is not renewed, it will not be collected after 2022-23. Levy proceeds fund ongoing expenses including building maintenance and upkeep, staffing, and collection development. Voting yes continues the levy. Voting no will force the Museum to reduce hours, reduce staff, or otherwise reduce its efforts to educate the public about the history of Crook County. The levy will generate approximately $295,300 in 2023-24, $311,541 in 2024-25, $328, 676 in 2025-26, and $346,753 in 2026-27. The estimated tax cost for this measure is an ESTIMATE ONLY based on the best information available from the county assessor at the time of the estimate and may reflect the impact of early payment discounts, compression and the collection rate. An elector may file a petition for review of this ballot title in Crook County Circuit Court no later than 4:30 p.m. on August 15, 2022.
