Park Rapids approves levy with increase
The Park Rapids School Board approved a preliminary district levy of $5,346,794 at Monday night's meeting, a 10 percent - $491,634 - increase over last year's amount.
Superintendent Lance Bagstad stressed the amount is being fiscally conservative and the figures are preliminary. Increases in health and safety costs "skewed" the amount for 2013, he said. "And we expect adjustments from the state."
