Huntsville Schools Seeks Millage Increase to Fund New Developments


The Huntsville School Board voted to seek a 3.9 millage increase this spring to fund multiple projects in the district.

School board members were on hand Monday to answer questions about the investment. 

The millage increase, if passed, would raise the districts millage range from 32.1 mills to 36 mills. 

The increase is expected to generate about $13 million that the district will use for a new activity center, a career to education building and upgrades to the school’s facilities.

“We’re wanting to build some buildings so that way it would help students be able to attend programs [and] get certifications [and] licenses to help them get in the workforce straight from high school,” said Lenora Riedel, school board member.

Huntsville’s millage rate is currently the lowest among public schools in the 5A conference.

Additional community meetings are being scheduled and the next will be held in St. Paul on April 15. 

Dates for Marble, Hindsville, Clifty and other areas of the county will be released soon.
