Today it’s one more time to the polls in the Indian River School District on a referendum that would raise $7.3 million in property taxes.
The district has argued that it needs the funds to handle the massive growth the district has seen in recent years.
WBOC reports that the district says the money will allow it to hire more teachers and improve security and technology.
In addition, the money would also help fund school programs.
If approved residents would pay an additional 49 cents for $100 of assessed property value.
That would mean an average of $95 a year.
