Bemidji school referendum will be held this fall

The Bemidji School Board has officially decided to hold a referendum this fall.

On Monday night, the board voted 5-1 to hold a referendum asking voters to renew a five-year operating levy at the current $501 per-pupil rate. As part of Monday night's vote, the board agreed to continue discussion of potentially adding a second ballot question.

Voting in opposition was board member Gene Dillon.
