The President of the Prairieview-Ogden School Board said it's too soon to tell what the board will want to do about a tax increase referendum that failed with voters on Tuesday night.
The 40 cent increase in the education fund tax rate lost by a vote of 322-182. If it had passed, it would have raised the rate to the maximum of $2.32 per $100 of assessment.
School Board President Darrin Flessner said a decision will have to be made by the entire board on when or if the issue comes back to the voters. But Flessner said the results of the primary will be discussed at next month's board meeting.
Meanwhile, Prairieview-Ogden Superintendent Victor White said he knew it was going to be difficult to get the tax increase approved.
