School Board approves 4-percent levy hike


The School Board approved a plan to raise Minneapolis Public Schools’ property tax levy 4 percent in 2013.

The vote cast Dec. 11 went 7–1 in favor of the levy hike, with just Board Chair Alberto Monserrate casting what he termed a “vote of conscience” against the resolution.

“One of the reasons I decided to vote against this is I thought the hundreds of people who voiced against this increase in levy needed some kind of representation,” Monserrate said. “But I was also shocked by the level of disinformation they have.”
