Board approves school tax levy hike
The Cloquet School Board voted to approve the maximum 2013-14 school levy possible without a public referendum at its Monday night meeting.
The board voted 5-1, with board chair Gary Huard in opposition, to increase the per-student levy from $97 to $300 for the next five years.
The result for the owner of a $100,000 home in Cloquet will be a property tax increase of about $60 a year, according to Business Manager Kim Josephson.
