The Mt. Lake Public School District is expected to go to voters in August, looking for a boost in the district’s operating levy to help reduce possible budget cuts.
The board recently reached a consensus that an August referendum would give the district enough time to inform voters, with hopes that a ‘vote yes’ committee would form.
The board did not yet determine the amount of additional funding it would seek from the voters. Final approval of the ballot question would need to be made by May 21 in order to hold an August election.
Additionally, state law requires operating levy votes not held in conjunction with a regular general election to be held using mail-in ballots.
