Brainerd School Board: Proposed levy shows reduction


Brainerd School Board members met together for a special meeting Thursday afternoon to review the first proposed levy for tax year 2013.

Director of Business Services Steve Lund presented a rundown of levy history, showing a wide variety of change, including jumping from $15,786,225 in 2011 to $16,845,880 in 2012. But instead of an increase, Lund said this year’s levy will reflect a reduction.
