Last night Brady Smith did a little story on WDIO TV about the future of the Red Plan now that the Governor and legislature has left it in the hands Duluth’s voters – NOT! (It’s the School Board’s decision you sillies)
Perhaps the best thing Brady emphasized is the great achievment of this legislature and Governor – a 3.9 percent cap on city and county property tax increases. He emphasized that School Districts were immune from this limitation. Duluth voters will almost certainly turn down a proposed operational levy this fall. However, that will not prevent the School Board from raising the property tax anyway to pay for the Red Plan because the State has already given them that authority.
