Deadline To Vote On Huron Opt Out This Week


The Huron School District is losing enrollment, but that's not the reason educators want to opt out of the property tax freeze.

They want another 600-thousand dollars in annual revenue for two years because of a projected increase in student numbers. The superintendent says the extra money will allow the district to hire staff and prepare for more non-English-speaking students.

Town leaders expect Huron to be more diverse because of projects such as a turkey processing plant being built and a new operations center for the Dakota, Minnesota and Eastern Railroad.


The deadline for residents to force a public vote is Thursday.
