Voters in the Dover-Eyota school district will go to the polls next Wednesday, May 7th, to decide if the elementary school building in Dover should be expanded and whether the district's athletic facilities should be upgraded.
The two-question ballot calls for 7.4 million dollars in bonds for the school expansion project and another 1.25 million for the athletic facilities,
Both questions need to be approved for the referendum to pass. If the building expansion question fails, the facilities question will also fail.
The current elementary building is 90 years old and in ned of major upgrades, according to the St. Charles Press.
School officials said it would cost at least 2-million dollars in upgrades just to keep it open. The athletic fields are in need of 300-thousand dollars in immediate improvements.
