Richland School District Referendum February 18th

The first of three community informational meetings regarding this spring's Richland School District referendum questions will take place this evening.

District Administrator Jarred Burke said the goal is to have people knowledgeable about the issues facing the district prior to heading to the ballot box.

There are three questions that will be asked of voters in April. The first seeks the authority to exceed the state-imposed revenue limit by up to $475,000 on a recurring basis to address immediate and long-term technology needs. The second referendum question asks for the authority to borrow up to $3,470,000 to address site safety and security concerns. The third asks for the authority to borrow up to $5,260,000 for building and maintenance needs.

Tonight's meeting will begin at 7:30 PM in the Richland Center High School IMC/Library. The other two community informational meetings will be on March 10th and March 29th – also in the high school IMC at 7:30. The same information will be presented at each of the meetings. There will be time for questions & answers. The public is encouraged to attend.
