SR-R Board Approves Levy Question for November Ballot
SAUK RAPIDS - Residents in the Sauk Rapids-Rice school district will be asked to approve a tax levy in November.
Superintendent Dan Bittman says the school board has unanimously approved putting one question on the ballot. It will ask for $1.7 million a year for six years.
If approved, it would pay for transportation for students who live in the district. Right now families are paying $200 a child to ride the bus.
The levy would increase property taxes by $100 a year on a home valued at $125,000.
Bittman says the money would also help to keep the current number of classes and programs for students. Voters defeated two questions last year.
