Tough economy greets ballot questions
Placeholder Image
We have a hard time recommending any school referendum in the current economic climate. The local economy is still in a funk, the proposed state budget is mired in controversy and uncertainty, and taxpayers throughout the area are telling us they have no more to give. The New Glarus referendum before district voters April 5, however, deserves taxpayer support.There's actually two questions before voters: The first seeks $10 million for additions and renovations at the elementary and middle/high schools, while the second seeks $85,000 in operational costs each year on a recurring basis.
