Belgrade residents split on failed mill levy


BELGRADE, Mont. - Belgrade school officials say after an elementary school mill levy failed to pass last night, they may not be able to restore support services cut back after a similar levy failed last year.

We spoke to Belgrade residents about the results. The reaction was split.

Many were disappointed in the community for not passing the levy and are worried for the future of Belgrade schools.

Others say the school has not been transparent or careful enough with taxpayer dollars in the past.

Opponents of the levy say the proposed tax increase, $49 a year on a $200,000 home, was just too much.
