Operating Referendum - Mankato Area Public Schools

The Mankato Area Public Schools are asking voters this November 7 to approve a referendum that will renew, and increase, an expiring operating levy. This proposal would call for increasing the District’s operating levy by $365 per student, from $784 to $1,149. As the Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Organization serving the region, Greater Mankato Growth, Inc. (GMG) is focused on promoting the economic growth and vitality of our regional marketplace through effective community and business development initiatives. After careful consideration, GMG has decided to endorse the Mankato Area Public School’s proposed operating referendum. We invite you to review our full statement explaning how and why GMG came to its decision to support the referendum.
