Willmar School Board making levy decisions, seeking input from the public


WILLMAR -- The Willmar School District will definitely ask voters this fall to replace a $498.49-per-pupil operating levy that expires at the end of the year.

What's not clear yet is if the School Board will ask voters for more money.

Board members said they hope to hear from the public about the levy in the next few weeks so that they can make final decisions at their Aug. 8 meeting.
