Property taxes make up the centerpiece of an ongoing debate about whether USD 257 voters will support construction of a new elementary school in Iola, a new science building for Iola High School and improvements to the Iola Middle School HVAC systems.

A quick survey of neighboring communities shows where Iola and USD 257 rank in terms of how much residents pay to own property within the school district.

When combined with taxes to support other entities, including Allen County, Allen Community College and the Southwind Extension District, a resident living in Iola pays a combined 178 mills in ad valorem taxes.
