State Senator-Elect Leonard W. Dernek and State Representative- Elect Clarence P. Hartner nnd City Councilmen William P. Theurer and Stanley W. Wieczorek met with of the board of education at an informal meeting at the Sen- ior High school Friday evening to discuss school and future. Superintendent of Schools L. 8, Harbo presented a written report which showed that by March 31, 1048, the school system's working balance of capital will be reduced to about. unless state aid Is materially increased by the 1947 leg- islature. This balance, it was ex- plained, is not large enough to cover the disbursements which will fall duo at that time. Needed The board estimates it will need the cf for operating expenses and it will have to be ob- tained from either local taxation or from increased state and federal Bids. It was pointed out that if the amount must be raised by local taxation, it would amount to an in- crease of 14.0 mills in tho present school tax rate. However, there is now a program under way in tho state to got tho amount of state old increased. If a plan proposed by the governor's committee on education is passed by tho legislature, about would be added to the amount of state aid paid Winona. As a result, the local mill need would be re- duced from 14.D to about 0.0 mills. Legislative action is necessary before Wlnona con levy even this increase because of a peculiar situ- ation which exists of. the school district. Before the turn of the century, Wlnona was set up as an independ- ent school district, similar to those in Minneapolis and St. Paul. The board, under the act, was empow- ered to levy tho amount of taxation needed to operate the schools. In 1923, the charter was amended to give Wlnona the right to levy a opcclnl ten-mill school -building sinking fund for tho construction of now buildings. This enabled tho city to got its new schools erected, but at tho tlmo tho amendment wan passed, n rule was included which limited tho lovy for general school purposes in Winona to 30 mills.
