Millard Public Schools is facing a large deficit.
MILLARD, Neb. (KMTV) - Facing a large budget shortfall, the Millard school district is taking a step to fix the deficit.
Last night, the MPS board voted to schedule a tax levy override referendum on Nov. 14. If voters approve the measure, it would cost the owner of a $150,000 home an extra $135 a year.
The increase would generate an extra $9 million for the district.
Superintendent Jim Suftin says the district as needs to a cut more than a dozen jobs, including three high school teachers.
