An article in the Star Tribune reported on the voting results of the levie requests. The districts who asked for levy renewals were mostly approved while the those who sought increases in their levies were mainly denied.
One of those districts was Stillwater.
"The Stillwater district had sought to replace its existing operating levy, which raises $996.57 per student, with a new levy of $1,465 per student. The current levy expires in 2014. The new levy would have been in effect for seven years. But 52 percent of those voting opposed the request, " a reporter for the Star Tribune said.
Something that is missing from this article is exactly how many people turned out to vote compared to how many could have voted. That would add a whole other element to this story.
