Sauk Rapids-Rice Board Reviewing Levy Survey Results [AUDIO]
SAUK RAPIDS — Are the residents of Sauk Rapids and Rice willing to raise their own taxes for school district programs? The school board will go over the results of a survey on the issue, during their meeting tonight (Monday).
Superintendent Dan Bittman says the Sauk Rapids-Rice district is one of only 36 districts in the entire state that doesn’t currently have an operating levy, to help balance their budget.
Bittman says their e-mail survey had about 27 questions. They received 1,000 responses.
The school board is expected to make a decision on whether to pursue an operating levy in either May or June.
