The Clintonville Board of Education recently approved the referendum question residents will see on the ballot during the April 4 election.
The question will ask voters whether or not to approve the borrowing of $24.9 million to build a new elementary school. The district says the plan includes a tax increase of no more than $98 for the owner of a $100,000 home for the first five years, and afterwards the rate would decline.
During the survey that was issued to district residents in prior months, it found more residents favored the building of a new school, rather than renovate the current Rexford-Longfellow school, which aligned with the findings of a task force study over several months.
If the referendum were to be approved by voters, the new building would be built behind the current location of Rexford-Longfellow, where school will be held until the new building is ready.
