Thursday night, the Kinnikinnick School District held a town hall meeting. The goal of it was to inform community members about the proposed referendum that'll go on the March 18, 2014 ballot. It suggests raising the property tax rate to 4.5 percent by 2017.
The school district says it's done everything to cut costs, but it has to keep the student's best intrest at heart.
"We love our students, we love working with this community, and we want to just, you know, prepare our students for their futures and make sure that we provide them a solid elementary foundation," said Keli Freedlund, Superintendent of the Kinnikinnick School District 131.
Kinnikinnick School District, even with the increase, would still have one of the lowest tax rates in the region.
