SARTELL -- A levy for the operation of the new high school, security and grade re-alignment will be put before voters in the Sartell-St. Stephen district this fall.

The previous levy, which voters approved in May of 2016, focused on the construction costs of building the new high school, remodeling the current high school into a middle school and the current middle school into an intermediate school.

The district held off on asking for the operational levy until now so they could make sure they would be putting the money to use sooner, rather than having it sit for several years.

The voters will be asked to amend the current levy authorization of $324.83 per student, to $760.00 per student. The district says the tax impact is expected to be an extra $82 per $100,000 worth of property in the district's borders.
