Sugar-Salem school board seeks input on levy

SUGAR CITY — Sugar-Salem School District 322 will hold a public meeting Wednesday to discuss a proposed $450,000 supplemental levy.
During a board meeting last Thursday, the Sugar-Salem board of trustees discussed the possibility of a plant facility levy, whose funds would go toward the school facilities — playgrounds, school buildings, playing fields, etc. However, board members were concerned with the limitation of this type of levy and how it would not allow them to purchase things like textbooks.
The board examined a long list of necessities within the district — including textbooks, keyboarding texts, copy machines, heating systems and broadband service. They narrowed the list to absolute needs and settled on a supplemental levy proposal of $450,000.
Superintendent Alan Dunn said the next step in the process is getting public input on the proposed levy. A public meeting about the levy will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
