Willmar, three other districts seeking operating levies Tuesday


WILLMAR -- Voters in the Willmar School District will decide Tuesday whether to approve an operating levy of $400 per pupil for the next 10 years.

In the operating levy vote Tuesday, the district proposes revoking a levy of $498.49 per pupil unit and replacing it with an $898.49 levy.

If the new levy is approved, school property taxes would increase about $10 a month for each $100,000 in property value on residential and business property in the district.
