ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) – Residents of the Redfield School District will decide Tuesday whether to opt out of the state property tax limits.
The opt-out would allow the district to collect an extra $350,000 a year above the state limits for five years.
Redfield Superintendent Randy Joyce tells the Aberdeen American News that the new opt-out would replace an expiring one that allowed the district to collect up to an extra $600,000 a year.
Joyce he believes the district has built up good will with area residents by not collecting the entire $600,000 allowed each year in the current opt-out. He says the district has only collected what was needed to help each year.
The Redfield vote was scheduled for last week, but was postponed by winter weather.
