(Aitkin, MN) — The Aitkin Public School District’s Capital Projects Levy and the Two new Hill City School Board members were decided upon in Tuesday’s Municipal & School District General Elections.

The Capital Projects Levy for ISD #1, proposing a $900,000 levy for taxes payable 2022 and would be authorized for ten years totaling $9-million, did pass on just over 66-percent of the voters in Aitkin County. Of the just over 7,000 registered voters in the District lines, 1,595 voted in favor of the Levy while 828 voted against.

The Levy will provide funds for ISD #1 maintenance and upkeep of software, computers, infrastructure, technology, transportation, personnel, training, and updates to district sites and facilities.

The Hill City School Board vacancies will be filled by Rich Kingsley and Ronald Saxton after a total 85 votes were casted between the two candidates.
