Brookfield seeks additional school levy
The Brookfield Board of Education has approved placing an additional, 4.85-mill continuous levy on the ballot for the May 7 primary election that will generate an additional $606,000 per year.
The levy would cost the owner of a $100,000 home $149 per year.
David Drawl, district treasurer, has projected that the district will have a $710,000 deficit by this summer.
The school district has been in fiscal watch since 2006 and failed at the polls in November to get approval for a 1-percent, five-year income tax that would have generated $1.4 million annually.
