Fall River Schools Approve Budget, Look at Referendum

10/27/11 – Fall River School District residents approved the $6.9 million dollar 2012 Budget this week, but there was over two hours of debate on a proposed referendum. The referendum package would include $1.65 million for the replacement of a failing H-VAC system, $270 thousand dollars for technology upgrades, $285 thousand for building maintenance, $200 thousand dollars for land acquisition and $1.2 million for a track / football facility. The District becomes “debt free” in April of 2012 and a referendum is likely for the April elections.
