Patrons of the Exira and Elk Horn-Kimballton Community School Districts are set to head to the polls on June 25th, for a vote on reorganization. Last week, members of the EHK Board approved setting the date for the vote. Their counterparts on the Exira School Board approved the same measure during their meeting this (Monday) morning.

The districts currently operate under a whole-grade sharing agreement. Superintendent Dean Schnoes has said the only difference the change will make if reorganization is approved by the voters on June 25th, is a property tax deduction of one-dollar at the onset, with a gradual increase over a period of three-years to $5.45 per thousand dollars of taxable property valuation.
