Survey says majority support levy funding
Residents give the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District high ratings for quality, value, job performance and fiscal management and would support additional levy funding, according to survey results presented to the school board.
The survey, conducted by Decision Resources Inc., showed that a majority of residents would support renewing the district’s current operating levy and also provide some additional funding.
At upcoming school board meetings, the board will decide whether to include one or two questions on the ballot and the amount they will ask voters to approve in the Nov. 5 general election.
Currently, the district has an operating levy of $20 million which expires in two years. When asked if they would renew that levy for another 10 years, 83 percent said yes.
Nearly two-thirds of respondents, or 64 percent, said they would vote for a tax increase under some conditions; 21 percent said they would vote against any tax increase and 15 percent said they would vote in favor of any tax increase.
The survey results are available on the district’s website at www.district196.org.
