RUTLAND, S.D. (AP) - People in the Rutland school district have approved a $250,000, three-year opt out of the state-imposed property tax freeze.

The school board in March approved a $450,000, five-year opt out, but the decision was referred to a public vote and defeated in May. The school board then proposed the smaller opt out and put it directly to a public vote.

The Daily Leader of Madison reports (http://bit.ly/1f3yY6l ) that 59 percent of the 172 people who voted Tuesday approved the proposal.
