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.
