Rapid City Voters Consider Opt-Out As School District Struggles

Jun 1, 2015

Todd Brink is the the chairman of the Support Our Schools RC Campaign.

On Tuesday, June 2nd for the first time ever,  Rapid City voters consider opting out of the state’s property tax reduction plan.   
 
The opt out would increase property taxes by about $6 each month per $100-thousand of valuation.
 
The extra money raised goes to local schools.   Many of those backing the opt out say schools are in dire need of funding.  But many those against it don’t like the idea of higher taxes.
