Perham rejects referendum; Pelican Rapids passes
Voters in Perham rejected a referendum Tuesday that would have given the school district an additional $695 per student for the next four years, leaving the district to stare down an annual budget shortfall of about $1 million.
Pelican Rapids schools narrowly avoided a similar fate Tuesday, with the district's $600 per-student levy passing with 54 percent of the 2,502 votes cast.
