DULUTH - Business leaders are throwing their support behind Duluth's school levy and they're encouraging the community to do the same.Next month Duluthians will vote on whether to renew the existing levy as well as a slight increase in property taxes.
School officials say it would cost the average Duluth household about $4 more a month.
The Chamber says the levy would reduce class sizes, address the achievement gap and update technology and textbooks.
"We understand that our children's, our students success is our communities success,” Duluth Chamber of Commerce President Dave Ross said. “If we are to compete on a national scale for talent we have to ensure that we have a strong education system here in Duluth."
Voters will face the two questions on November 5th.
