School board continues tax discussion


Members of the public engaged in a discussion with the Pine River-Backus School Board concerning a possible board approved tax levy at the Aug. 19 regular meeting.

At issue is the 2013 Omnibus Tax Bill, which gives the Pine River-Backus School Board the legal authority to increase its operating levy from $1.02 per student up to as much as $300 per pupil unit without voter approval.

Monday’s meeting started with a bang, as board invited members of the public to comment.
