Horicon School District Getting To Work On Referendum Construction Planning

(Horicon) The Horicon School District superintendent expressed his gratitude to the community for supporting two referendum questions during a school board meeting Monday night. On the April 3 ballot, voters approved a $22.9-million question that will go towards building a new elementary school next to the high school where secure entrances will be installed. The second question is for $3.9-million and addresses infrastructure needs at the junior/senior high school. Rich Apple says both referendum passed with 62-percent of the vote and it will be an exciting process to help build the future of education in Horicon. The district has hired C.D. Smith and Bray Architects to work on the design and construction phases of the project. School officials will be meeting with both firms in the next week to discuss proposals. Apple says there is no construction timeline set in place currently and during the initial development phase the district leadership team will be visiting other school campuses in the area. Apple says it will most likely be a year before any ground is broken.
