Brookfield BOE places new levy on spring ballot
Brookfield Board of Education approved placing an additional, 4.85-mill continuous levy on the May 7 primary election ballot that would 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 to get voter approval last November for a 1 percent, five-year income tax that would have generated $1.4 million annually.
