Ellsworth school board approves referendum

Posted:

Ellsworth (WQOW) - Residents of a western Wisconsin school district will be voting on two referendum questions come February.

The Ellsworth School Board voted last night to ask voters to approve a new elementary school.

The estimated 29-million dollar project would replace three aging schools, which will be sold or demolished.

School district residents will also be asked to allow the district to exceed the revenue limits by $800,000  a year for three years.

If both referendum questions are approved, the owner of a $100,000 home would pay an additional $140 in taxes.
