VIGO COUNTY, Ind.- At the Vigo County School Board Meeting, Monday night the Vigo County Taxpayers Association endorsed the School Corporation Operational Referendum.

The referendum calls for a $7 million property tax increase to pay for several items including student safety, student health, transportation and competitive teacher salaries.

He said those will be starting after Labor Day.
