HARTFORD, S.D. (AP) - Hartford-area residents will vote next month on a proposed tax increase to fund schools in the West Central district.

The Argus Leader reports (https://argusne.ws/2bjGuxT ) that the vote on whether to opt out of the state’s property tax freeze is Sept. 27.

The opt-out would raise an additional $500,000 for the district’s budget. Administrators say it’s necessary to avoid cutting staff or programs.

Opponents have formed a group called the Citizens for Fiscal Responsibility. Organizer Dick Haase says existing school district money could be better managed.
