School district referendum vote passes by narrow margin

A decent turnout for a non-general election question was enough to put the Chisago Lakes school district referendum over-the-top, but by a slim margin. Voters on Tuesday this week approved the school board to levy to support an additional $225 per pupil, on a total of 1,599 yes and 1,525 no. The voter-approved levy, when added to the new School Board approved levies, will increase your monthly property tax bill by an additional $6 if your home is around $100,000 in market valuation, and by $14 per month if it’s closer to $200,000 valuation. A $500,000 property will chip in about $28.75 each month as its increase.

Chisago Lakes has set the stage now for receiving in per pupil revenues, the $300 (replacing an existing $400 levy) and the $424 location equity revenue approved by the Board and the $225 approved by voters-- plus expected state aid formula increases. The district plans to work on addressing increases in class sizes, and on enhancing building security and technology. Voters in the Taylors Falls precinct and the handful of families who reside in Washington County and attend school in Chisago County opposed the measure...the levy lost by 32 votes in voting at TF Elementary and by 17 votes for the Washington County ballots. Chisago City and Lindstrom precincts approved the levy. In Chisago City it was 435 to 414 no and in voting at the high school the tally was 835 to 733 no.
