Smyrna School District tax referendum passes

Delaware Public Media

Voters in the Smyrna School District approved $667,300 capital referendum over the weekend.

The referendum passed Saturday, with 317 residents voting yes and 134 no.

Smyrna Superintendent Patrik Williams says the additional money allows the district to repair the roof at North Smyrna Elementary School. 

He adds it also funds replacing equipment like the boiler, the air handler and some of the schools’ plumbing. 

The tax increase approved raises the average district taxpayers rate roughly $3 per year - based on a $200,000 market-value property.
