IMPORTANT SAFETY UPDATES, District News, and Information
Deming Public Schools Capital Improvements Act Two-Mill Levy Tax Question Will Not Raise Property Taxes

On Tuesday, February 5, 2019, a special election will be held within the Deming Public School District. There will be a question on the ballot to renew the Public School Capital Improvements Act Levy (two-mill levy). This is not a new tax, but a renewal that will not change your property tax bill. The two-mill levy is already set at $2.00 per $1,000.00 of net taxable value of a property, so a renewal cannot increase your property tax bill. The renewal will be for property tax years 2019 through 2024.

Re-authorization of the two-mill levy will mean funding for capital improvements that can be used for many purposes, including classroom furniture and equipment, student computers and technology, activity vehicles, playground equipment, roof repairs, ADA accessibility, and safety and security improvements. The two-mill levy funding cannot be used for salaries.

“The two-mill levy funds support the Facilities Master Plan which is developed with the input of stakeholders within the community of Deming and Luna County to prioritize capital projects within the district. Without these funds the district would not be able to continue updating learning or support facilities that are advantages to the educational growth of our students.” said DPS Chief Officer of Support Services Herb Borden.

All registered, qualified voters can vote on the two-mill levy question. Ballots will be by mail for this special election. Ballots will be mailed to all registered voters on or before January 8, 2019. Ballots must be received by the Luna County Clerk’s Office by February 5, 2019. If you did not receive your ballot, please contact the Luna County Clerk’s Office at (575) 546-0491, or visit them at 700 S. Silver, Deming, NM.

For additional information please contact Deming Public Schools at (575) 546-8841, or come to one of our three public meetings to discuss the upcoming election to renew the Public School Capital Improvement Tax. The first public meeting will be located at Bell Elementary, 100 E. Maple, Deming, NM on Tuesday January 15, 2019 at 5:30 p.m. The second public meeting will be located at Bataan Elementary, 2200 Hwy 418 SW, Deming, NM on Thursday January 24, 2019 at 5:30 p.m. The last public meeting will be located at Columbus Elementary, 7450 Altura Rd SE, Columbus, NM Tuesday January 29, 29019 at 5:30 p.m.

Superintendent Dr. Arsenio Romero extends the following invitation: “Please join us at the public meetings so we can discuss the two-mill levy, answer any of your questions, and show you some of our successful projects with the funding.”
