Voters in Maple River School District to Vote on New School Referendum on Tuesday

Voters in the Maple River School District will be asked to decide whether or not to approve a $63.3 million bond to build a new Pre-K through Grade 12 School Building.

 

The latest referendum comes after State Lawmakers passed the Ag-2-School Tax Credit, which will increase tax credits on school bonds by 70% over the next three years in Minnesota.  The tax credit will result in the state covering over half of the total cost of building the school.

 

If the referendum is approved, it’s expected to take about two years to build the school and the existing buildings will close.

 

Polls will be open on Tuesday, February 11th, from 7am-8pm.
