School referendum: Last chance to get informed

The school district's second levy referendum of the year is Nov. 8.

As that date approaches, the school board has set up two information forums for people who wish to learn more.

The first forum took place Oct. 27; a second referendum forum is 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 3, and is at the Meyer Middle School library.

Superintendent Tom Westerhaus says the forums will last about 90 minutes and will include a question-and-answer session the last half hour.

Before that, the audience can expect to see PowerPoint presentations by school board members Mike Miller and Dennis Behnke about various aspects of the three-question referendum.

Other school board members and representatives from the school district's financial firm, Ehlers and Associates, and the district's architectural firm, ATSR, will also attend to comment and answer questions.
