Voters approve spending projects in three school districts


Western Wisconsin (WQOW) - Spending initiatives were on the ballot in three western Wisconsin school districts on Tuesday and all three referenda passed.

In Cameron, voters approved a $23.5 million referendum.  The vote was 600-349.  A new elementary school will be built.  The middle and high schools will also be upgraded.  The district says the next step is to meet with an architect.

Residents in Rice Lake also gave the go-ahead to a big school project.  A $20.3 million referendum was approved by a vote of 1,677-1,201.  The money will be used to build additions and remodel portions of the high school, middle school and an elementary school.

Voters in the Arcadia School District gave the green light to build a new middle school.  A $14 million referendum will support that project and remodel an elementary school.  It passed by a vote of 556-492.
