The Walker-Hackensack-Akely School District will try to convince voters to approve a levy increase next Tuesday. The district placed a levy referndum before voters in December but it failed by 18 votes. Superintendent Wallace Schoeb said this levy request is for less money over less time and there will be only one question on the ballot instead of two. If this attempt passes, it would raise an additional $550 per pupil or roughly $593,000 each year net for eight years. A voter whose home was valued at $150,000 would see an increase of $97 per year. School district voters will cast their ballots in Onigum, Hackensack, Akeley and at Walker High School on Tuesday, February 12th from 10am to 8pm. To find out how much your property taxes would rise, go to the school's web site, click on the button marked "Operating Levy Info" and look for the Tax Impact Calculator.
