Voters asked to up levy limit for BTC
MONROE - A Green County referendum on the Aug. 12 primary ballot will ask residents to increase the tax levy limit by $4 million for the 2014-2015 school year and thereafter for operational costs at Blackhawk Technical College. According to Kelli Cameron, BTC director of college advancement and community relations, a "yes' vote will allow the college to add weekend and evening classes for part-time students; help fill vacant staff positions; and expand existing programs such as welding, computer systems technology, fire training and agribusiness. The money would be divvied up between new faculty positions, student and staff support, a flex account, a grant-writing position and installing a water main at the central campus between Janesville and Beloit.
