Munster to vote on schools referendum

May 6, 2013 3:14:38 PM PDT
Residents of Munster, Indiana, have the future of their town's schools in their hands. School officials say if a property tax increase fails, students will not receive a quality education.

The referendum asks for a property tax increase of nearly 20 cents per $100 assessed value.

If voters approve, the referendum will add $3 million a year for seven years to the district's general fund.

The town of Munster has lost state funding since 2002 and is in serious need of funds. The district ranks fifth from the bottom in per student funding.
