RUSHFORD, Minn.- The Rushford-Peterson School District wants to inform its residents about the election this November.
They want their residents to pay close attention to a specific issue on the ballot.
The district is asking residents to vote on an extension on the current operating levy and also have a slight increase on the levy.
That levy has been in place since 2002.
The increase would be $100 per student and when the school district broke it down, they say residents will pay about $3.40 per month.
This would allow districts to attain more funding from local property tax and state aid.
The money they will get will go to the school to help with everyday operations like utilities and supplies for students.
Parents like Steve Oian tell KIMT that they do whatever it takes to see their community succeed.
“Children are our future and gods knows we can use all the help we can get so if we can fund this district and get these children in a position to succeed and make the world better I’m all for that,” said
If the Operating Referendum is approved then it will go into effect spring 2020.
