ISD 88 Referendum Support 05 Sep 12

New Ulm District 88 residents are being asked to attend a special meeting today (WED). Volunteers are being sought to organize support for the upcoming property tax levy referendum on the ballot in the District 88 area this November. The school district is asking voters to approve a 10-year, $575 per-pupil referendum on November 6th which would raise nearly $1.3-million in annual revenue. A total of approximately $3-million in budget cuts have been made by District 88 over the last 3 years, and the newly-formed steering committee supporting the referendum believes it’s time to stop the recurring cycle of budget cuts and staff reductions due to decreased state funding for education. Dozens of concerned citizens are needed to form committees involving finance, communications, and more. The meeting begins at 7pm today in the District Administrative Center Board Room.
