Additional $375 annual check to Watertown Schools? VOTE Nov. 5

That’s how much more someone with a $500K market valuation will pay annually if the revenue referendums proposed by Watertown School District pass in November:

Westonka Schools also have a revenue referendum increasing school spending coming up for a vote November 5 as well. A $500K property would see an annual increase of approximately $121 in that district if it passes.

Both referendums provide for annual inflationary increases for the next ten years.

  1. The bar chart that displays the Voter Approved Operating Levy Comparison on the Watertown-Mayer School District’s website if very interesting. It shows that the Westonka School District is currently taxing a full $1,087 per pupil per year as opposed to $766 for Rockford, $694 for Lester Prairie, $664 for Dassel-Cokato, $536 for Waconia, $365 for Delano, $71 for Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted, $67 for Watertown-Mayer, $60 for Annandale, $0 for Norwood, $0 for Jordan, $0 for Buffalo, and $0 for Glenco-Silver Lake. How is it that Westonka needs a huge 75.7% increase over 4 years when they are already taking in significantly more than our neighboring school districts? Supt. Kevin Borg has a bit of explaining to do. I will be voting NO! on November 5th.
