ELC board to consider two items for fall ballot

June 14, 2013
By David Swartz - Managing Editor , Estherville Daily News

The action taken in the 2013 legislative session is trickling down to affect schools.

Among the funds affected are those generated Physical Plant and Equipment Levy PPEL.

At its regular meeting on Monday, the Estherville Lincoln Central School Board will consider a recommendation from superintendent Tara Paul to increase the voter-approved levy to $1.34 per $1,000 assessed valuation. The school district currently as a $1 voter-approved levy.

If the board approves Paul's recommendation, ELC voters will consider the increase on the ballot this fall.

In another issue dealing with the statewide one cent sales tax revenue, the board will consider a revise revenue purpose statement. The statement is necessary or the school could risk have state officials determine how ELC uses those funds when the current purpose statement sunsets. If approved by the board, the Revenue Purpose Statement also would be on the school ballot in the fall.
