School override levy set at $1.94 million

After much discussion last week trustees of Joint School District #171 set the override levy at $1.94 million, which is up $200,000 from last year’s amount of $1.74 million. The election will be held May 17.

“The board hashed the levy amount over and over,” said Trina Snyder, clerk and business manager, “and came to the new figure which is still below the $2 million mark.”

“It was not an easy thing to do,” she added. “State funding has gone way down as well as the school enrollment is down and all this affects revenue received from the state,” Snyder said.
