Detroit Lakes Public Schools will receive a financial boost next year as voters overwhelmingly approved an increased operating levy Tuesday.

The levy will increase from $319 per pupil to $457 per pupil, with the district gaining over $400,000 in new operating revenue. The operating levy will last for 10 years.
