OV budget voted down again

SOUTH OTSELIC – For the second year in a row, residents of the Otselic Valley School District voted down the school’s proposed budget, making OV again the only school in the county to have its budget defeated.

The proposed OV budget called for an increase from $7,819,634 in 2006/2007 to $8,178,842 for the 2007/2008 school year. Although the increase in spending was relatively small, at 4.59 percent, because of the small, rural nature of the district, the increase in spending would cause a tax levy jump of 5.77 percent. Voters turned down the budget Tuesday by a margin of only 33 votes, 170 to 137.
