PR-B School Board approves levy showing 26 percent increase
The Pine River-Backus School Board approved a $1,192,769.48 levy at its Dec. 17 regular meeting.
This is $246,621 (26.07 percent) more than the last certified levy. Business Manager Jolene Bengtson said this number is so large because the board under-levied for 2013.
“In 2013, we cut revenue from nearly all of the general levy categories. Levying the maximum this year means you are covering the cut from last year as well as new revenue from this year,” Bengtson said.
