To the Editor,

To members of the Rushford-Peterson School District concerning your vote on the levy referendum to be held on November 6.

1. The referendum is now affordable for all of us.

2. The changes our state legislature have made in out tax laws has made this possible.

3. If the levy is passed, non-homestead agriculture and commercial property will not be taxed more. City residential and agricultural property homesteads will be taxed the same. Those which higher taxable values could be taxed some.

4. A minimum of a $200.00 homestead tax credit, which in many cases will be higher, for everyone is a big factor in lowering the tax - such as homes of lower taxable value.

5. Because we must pay our debt of over $250,000, and our school has to have money to pay the monthly bills, your yes vote is absolutely necessary.

6. It comes down to this. If we really want to continue to provide a good education for our youth we will vote yes on the levy referendum. A vote no now, and in the future, could jeopardize our having a school here in years to come.

7. For any further desired information attend the meeting at the R-P Auditorium in Rushford on Monday, October 29 at 8:00 p.m.

We are all pleased that farm land has been exempted from this school tax.
