Schools Vote On Opt Out
January 24, 2012, 6:45 AM
SIOUX FALLS, SD - Yankton residents will vote on an opt out of the state property tax freeze, while people in Huron will
not get a chance to vote on an opt out unless they refer it.
The Yankton School board voted Monday night to pursue an opt out for up to $1.4 million per
year for two years to help deal with a budget shortfall. A public vote is scheduled February 28th.
The Huron School Board on Monday night approved a one-year, $750,000 opt out. Board President John Halbkat says the group decided not to bring it to voters because if the Legislature doesn't make changes to school funding this year the board might need to pursue a much larger opt out next year.
