Sleepy Eye Levy Referendum 10 Aug 12

The Sleepy Eye School Board on Thursday unanimously approved a resolution to bring a levy referendum before District 84 voters this Fall. The district will seek a 5-year, $500 per-pupil referendum to finance school operations and increase it’s general education revenue. If approved it would raise the property taxes on a home valued at $100,000 by a total of $110 per-year. The referendum will be on the November 6th general election ballot for residents of the Sleepy Eye School District. Two previous levy referendums have failed in Sleepy Eye in recent years.
