Burlington emergency school board meeting canceled

Posted: Updated:

Burlington school officials on Wednesday called an emergency school board meeting over concerns they had set the wrong tax rate, but a few hours later they canceled the meeting.

School board members said in recent discussions with district and state officials they had become concerned the tax rate for fiscal year 2014 was set too high or too low, meaning taxpayers were paying the wrong amount.

They called a special meeting for Thursday to try to get a handle on the situation. But late Wednesday afternoon, the district issued a new statement saying that state officials have determined that the tax rate was set appropriately.
