Fargo voters say "no" to levy extension

FARGO, ND (KFGO AM) -- Voters have rejected a measure which would have extended the authority of Fargo Public Schools to raise taxes in the form of a heightened mill levy cap.

Unofficial results of yesterday's special election show a total of 6,080 ballots cast, with 2,594 "yes" votes supporting the increase and 3,486 "no" votes against it -- more than 57% against and just about 43% for it.

School Board President Dinah Goldenberg said the outcome will impact budget talks for the 2014-2015 school year, which the board will begin shortly.

Election law allows the school district to hold another election before december 31st, 2015, a decision Goldenberg says the board has not yet made.
