A decrease in state aid means more of a burden for tax payers in the La Crosse School district.

Tuesday night, the school board voted again on a budget after factoring changes to revenue limits and state aid.

As we've reported, the school district lost more than two million dollars in state aid.

That's part of the reason for a six and a half percent increase to the tax levy.

The superintendent projects a one hundred thousand dollar home will see an increase of seventy-six dollars.

"And also included in that increase to the levy is going to be some debt payments now coming on board with the 2008 referendum and the referendum for the new schools," says Randy Nelson, La Crosse School district superintendent.

Nelson says taxpayers will se some relief if enrollment continues to increase as it did this year.
