The Pine River-Backus School Board will hold a special public meeting at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 13, to discuss options for this year’s operating levy.

Under the 2013 Omnibus Tax Bill, the Pine River-Backus School Board was granted 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.

I then transfered up to Bemidji State University in, you guessed it, Bemidji, MN. In the spring of 2009, I graduated from BSU. Then in the fall of 2009 I got a job at Echo Publishing, a sister company to the Brainerd Dispatch.
