Posted:

Durand (WQOW) - Voters in the Durand School District will be asked to decide two spending questions this fall.

Tonight the Board of Education approved a pair of questions for the November ballot. The first will be for $17.5 million. The district says renovations and additions are needed at Caddie Woodlawn Elementary and also at the middle and high school. It would also pay for renovations to the Arkansaw elementary gym and office area, the rest of the building would be demolished.

The second question will be for $1.5 million. It would pay for renovations to the football and athletic fields and the track. Both questions will be approved through formal resolutions at a board meeting next week.

In 2012, voters approved a $600,000 referendum spread over three years. At the time the district says the money was needed to reseal parking lots, paint gym walls, and make the bleachers ADA compliant.
