Candidates not all sold on levy


WILLMAR -- Candidates for the Willmar School Board agreed on several issues Tuesday during a candidate forum, but they came down 6-to-1 on the district's proposed operating levy.

Along with choosing three new board members on Tuesday, the district's voters will be asked to revoke an existing $498.49 per pupil levy and replace it with an $898.49 levy that would last for the next decade .
