Holdingford School Board Briefs:

A School Board work session was held July 11th, 2017.  Higgins opened the meeting with the first agenda item Capital Levy versus Operating Levy. The Board discussed the pros and cons of each option and concluded going with an Operating Levy without an inflationary adjustment. On an Operating Levy approximately ¼ is equalized with State Aid and farms are taxed on one acre, house and garage. The Board will ask voters to approve a ten-year levy at $200 per pupil. The voting will take place on Nov. 7, 2017 at the High School Board room, the same as has been done in the past when running a stand-alone election. The Poles will be open from 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM.

Next agenda item Bond Referendum Question. The Board set the Facilities Bond amount at $19,690,000.

Lastly the Board defined the Bond Referendum question language. The language will be sent to Bond Council for legal review.
