Northfield Schools Approve Levy Request Turn Down Building

The Northfield Public School District had their additional operating levy request narrowly approved Tuesday night and the building bond margin of defeat was just under a thousand votes.

Northfield Superintendent Matt Hillmann will be the guest on our Northfield community program from Professional Pride Realty in Northfield Wednesday.

The Northfield Public Schools asked for permission to issue general obligation school building bonds in an amount not to exceed 109 million dollars.

The money was to be used to construct a new high school, demolish the present high school, construct a new elementary school,  construction of additions to and  renovations of the Bridgewater and Sibley Elementary school sites and facilities, the construction of renovations and improvements to Longfellow School, and the construction of renovations and improvements to Greenvale Elementary School to convert that facility for use as a early childhood center.

The building request vote was 3,467 yes and 4,436 no.  Approximately 56.13% no to 43.8% yes.

The question that passed asked for a revocation of the existing $1,497.17 per pupil operating levy and replacement with a $1,967.32 per pupil.

That authorization also included a stipulation that the proposed “new referendum authorization would increase each year by the rate of inflation and be applicable for ten years, beginning with taxes payable in 2018.”
