BROOKLYN CENTER, Minn. (WCCO) — School leaders in Brooklyn Center are hoping history doesn’t repeat itself as voters will once again make their decision over a proposed levy.
Voters have defeated eight straight levies put on the ballot in Brooklyn Center.
The district is asking taxpayers to keep funding at its current level. That existing operating levy, which is set to expire, costs taxpayers about $50 dollars a month.
Brooklyn Center’s superintendent told Minnesota Public Radio that if the levy fails, the district will have to make $600,000 in cuts.
Tuesday’s levy vote will be held at Brooklyn Center High School located at 6500 Humboldt Avenue North and polls are open from 7 a.m.-8 p.m. Absentee ballots are currently available upon request.
