The Grand Forks school board gave final approval to a 2012-13 operating budget last night that calls for a zero mill increase in taxes next year. Under the plan the district’s budget will grow slightly due to increases in the value of a mill. School board member Kelly Hogness raised a motion to reduce the general fund by .85 mills to achieve a zero growth budget. Superintendent Larry Nybladh says says doing so would not be a wise move this late in the budget process. The budget was adopted by a unanimous vote among school board members present for last night’s meeting.
