Large Value in Small Change

  • Prop G asks voters to consider a 21 cent increase to the existing debt service tax rate. This will cost the owner of a $200,000 home about $79.80 more per year, or approximately $6.65 a month. Lindbergh already has the third lowest tax rate of the 22 public school districts in St. Louis County. Even with the proposed 21 cent increase, Lindbergh's tax rate will remain one of the lowest in St. Louis County.
