Open Houses On Dodgeland Referendum Scheduled

(Juneau) The Dodgeland School District is holding several open houses in advance of a spring referendum. If approved, the $17-million-dollar question would address building-wide infrastructure updates and site improvements, renovate the tech-ed classes as well as the cafeteria and commons area and add secure entrances. The elementary and district offices would also be upgraded as well. District officials says their goal is to improve their educational spaces, overall safety and infrastructure of their campus. They say even if the referendum is approved, there would still be a projected 40-cent drop in the mill rate. Four open houses will be held  with the first one tonight (Tuesday, March 3rd) and continuing through March 16th. Dodgeland School Board President David Beal says they hope citizens, parents and community members will take the opportunity to learn more about the proposed referendum projects. Representatives from the district’s financial, construction and architectural partners will be on hand to answer questions. District administrators, staff and school board representatives will also be in attendance. An open house tonight will run from 6pm to 7pm at the Clyman Village Hall. Other open house locations include Reeseville Community Center on Monday, March 9th; Dodgeland School Commons on Thursday, March 12th and at the Lowell VFW on Monday, March 16th. All are from 6pm to 7pm. Representatives of the Dodgeland School District will be our guests on WBEV’s Community Comment March 11th to discuss the referendum.
