Timber Lake School Board discusses taxation, track

When Dist. 28 Sen. Ryan Maher (R-Isabel) and Dist. 28A Rep. Oren Lesmeister (D-Parade) met with the Timber Lake School Board last week, Lesmeister said he thought the legislature could fix the issue of taxation of school-owned rental housing.

The issue arose after a ruling that the Highmore-Harrold School District should be taxed on residential property it rents out. Both the Timber Lake and Eagle Butte school districts own housing which is rented to teachers, which has been exempt from property tax.

The Timber Lake School Board is appealing the change to taxable status to the Dewey County Board of Equalization.
