Long-Term Facilities Maintenance (LTFM)

The state of Minnesota provides school districts with the financial authority to address ongoing maintenance problems in buildings through a combination of non-voter-approved property taxes and state aid, which is called Long-Term Facilities Maintenance or LTFM. In June, the school board approved the first year of a 10-year plan that will address issues with heating, air conditioning, ventilation, maintenance, roofs, paving, walls, floors, and windows. During the first year, the district will invest $12 million in solving existing maintenance problems.
