SAUK RAPIDS, MN (KNSI) - Sauk Rapids-Rice School District voters will have a tax levy question to decide in November. Monday the school board voted unanimously to approve a six year levy resolution.

If voters give it the okay, it would levy 380-dollars a student, or an additional one-point-seven million dollars a year to maintain school programs and services. It would be paid for in the form of higher property taxes.

Superintendent Dan Bittman says taxes on a 125-thousand dollar home in the district would go up about 100-dollars. There are 340 school districts in Minnesota, and Sauk Rapids-Rice is one of just 43 that does not have an operating levy in place to provide additional funding for its schools.
