Wisconsin Voters Said Yes to One Building Project

(2/20/13) Wisconsin school voters said yes to one building project, and no to another.

Only two bonding referendums were on yesterday's primary ballots throughout the Badger State. In Whitehall, 63-percent of voters said yes to a new elementary school that will cost 12-and-a-half million dollars to build and equip. In Rice Lake, a nearly 20-and-a-half million dollar project was voted down 52-to-48 percent. It would have included expansions and remodeling for parts of Rice Lake High School and a middle school – plus an addition to Tainter Elementary School to accommodate a transfer of students from another site. Meanwhile, voters were more generous in granting exemptions to state-imposed revenue caps. 59-percent of Rhinelander voters said yes to paying an extra four-million-dollars in school taxes over the next three school years. In the Eagle River area, voters said yes by 3-to-2 margins for an additional two-point-seven million dollars to maintain programs in the Northland Pines district for the next three years – plus 240-thousand to improve walls in the buildings. Smaller cap exemptions were approved in Three Lakes and Bangor.
