With the November election nearing—and the memory of the still lingering—the Richfield School Board has put together two ballot questions asking voters for funds this fall.
As proposed, the first asks voters if they would like to renew the existing referendum at $301.40 in per pupil spending. The second asks if voters would support an additional $60 tacked on to that figure if the renewal is approved.
The full per pupil dollar amount does not represent what people would pay additionally in property taxes. Had last year's measure passed, the average increase for homeowners would've been around $119 annually.
If either version of the referedum passes, it wil be in effect for 10 years. The two questions are not final yet. The board will vote on the proposed language at its next meeting on Monday, Aug. 13, according to . Shots of the proposed questions are in the photo box above.
