District 206 school board members voted Monday night to decrease taxes for some area residents while increasing revenue for the school district.


Yes, you heard right - school revenue will increase, but taxes may actually drop for some.

"With a referendum increase, you'd usually think that taxes will also increase, but that's not the case here," noted Trevor Peterson, director of business services with District 206, at Monday's regular school board meeting.
