The Pine River-Backus School Board approved a maximum proposed levy of $1,109,579.97 for 2014.
This amount is a 17.27 percent increase over the 2013 certified levy of $946,147.97, a total increase of $163,432. It was explained that this levy accounts for $82,893.28 from a $300 per pupil levy, but does not account for more than $125,000 in state aid that the school would receive with that levy.
The board approved a maximum proposed levy; however, this amount will not be certified until December. Before that time, the amount of the actual levy can be reduced.
