Budgetary issues take toll on the Willmar Schools' levy plans


WILLMAR -- The lack of a state budget is affecting the Willmar School District's ability to plan for its operating levy referendum this fall.

The Willmar School Board discussed its options for a Nov. 8 referendum at Monday's meeting. The levy will seek to at least replace an expiring local levy of $498.49 per pupil.

The board will probably hold a workshop session in the next month to discuss plans for the levy. A date for the meeting will be chosen later.
