The standard state auditor tax calculation resulted in a blended rate of $3.8056 compared to $3.7994 last year.
The tax-rate hearing will be held in the Mehlville High School Library, 3200 Lemay Ferry Road, but because of social distancing efforts due to the COVID-19 pandemic, attendance will be limited and face coverings will be required.
A livestream of the tax rate hearing can be viewed on the district’s Youtube channel, youtube.com/mehlvilleschools.
