The Rushford-Peterson School district is moving quickly to complete details for a proposed new school building the district wants to place before its voters in a November referendum.
The Post-Bulletin reports district officials are hoping to complete the design of a pre-K-thorough 12th grade building by August so the proposal can be presented to district voters prior to the referendum in November.
The district is being helped by a bill passed by the legislature this spring that would cover 60-percent of the loans on a new building project. The new building has been estimated to cost over 30 million dollars not counting the interest on loans.
In the past, voters have rejected efforts to pass a referendum because of tax increases on their properties.
District officials are hoping the state aid will cast a more favorable light a bond referendum this time.
