The online calculator helps you calculate the fiscal impact of the Hardy, Hunnewell projects; register to vote before November 17th

Based on the ease with which Articles 2 and 3 of the Town of Wellesley Special Meeting were passed to support funding for proposed projects for Hardy and Hunnewell Elementary Schools, it is highly likely that the public will vote in favor. correspondence debt exclusions on December 7.

The projects have their detractors, who spoke at the city meeting about considering one project or the other for now and trying to avoid, among other things, very high material costs during a pandemic. . But if the public votes for debt exclusions, and you’re a landowner who intends to stay here, you’ll want to know how much these debt exclusions are going to add to your annual property tax bills.

We heard at the city’s special meeting that the maximum median annual increase would be $ 753. But now the city has deployed a tax impact estimator to give you a better idea of ​​your own situation (we will need to sell a few more ads to cover our increase). Note, however, that the calculations are based on the assessed valuation of the properties for fiscal year 2021.

No dollar amount is mentioned in the poll questions themselves. This would have involved the city of taking complex measures involving state statues, as described here.
