On Tuesday March 22, 2016, Garretson voters have approved to opt of out the current taxation plan to allow for greater taxes to be collected for funding the local school system.

Shannon Nordstrom, President of the Garretson Public School Board says the unofficial count is 472 yes votes and 360 votes against the tax increase.

Nordstrom says the funding of the school system will maintain the vitality of the town and hopefully encourage other families to call Garretson home.
