SD2 Trustees Working On Spring Levies
School District 2 Trustees agreed in principal on Monday night to guidelines for spring levies for both the elementary and high school district. The $1.3 million for the elementary district and $1.2 for the high school district would raise taxes about $9 and $6 per year respectively on a $100,000 home. Trustees said they could put a lower figure on the ballot for the May 2 vote, depending on final approval of the state budget.
On Monday, they focused on what will change from last year’s failed levies. A political advocacy group called Yes For Kids, has spearheaded the pro-levy campaign. SD2 officials and administrators can’t take an advocacy position on levies, but can distribute educational information about why the district is running a levy. District officials will host several community meetings. Yes For Kids plans to target supportive voters.
