He's a teacher and longtime supporter of schools--but he says 'no' to levy hike
It is a dilemma for him, but retired teacher Roger Vettleson will be voting 'no' on the levy referendum for the Perham-Dent schools.
For Vettleson, who taught in the Moorhead school system and retired to the Perham area, his property taxes will rise $800 a year if the levy passes--this on top of several years of $700-$800 increases due to rising property values.
"I'm paying more in property taxes than I am in federal income taxes," said Vettleson.
