Renville County West District residents, in addition to the many important political races you have the opportunity to vote on Nov. 8, you also have an opportunity to vote for our school.

On that day, you will be asked to renew the district's operating levy. An operating levy helps cover basic expenses of the school district, including salaries, utilities, technology, transportation, etc. Without the renewal of this operating levy, the district will be forced to make significant cuts to student programming.

District residents are being asked to renew the current operating levy. The district is not asking for additional money, just the ability to continue with the same level of funding. Approval of the levy renewal will increase most people's taxes by one or two dollars a year, depending on your property value.

It is important to note that agricultural property is based on the value of the house, garage and surrounding one acre of land only.

Please join me in voting yes for RCW on Nov. 8.
