LCWM Referendum Meeting Today 23 Jun 14

Residents of the Lake Crystal Wellcome Memorial School District will be voting on a $12-million bond referendum later this summer, and a public meeting on the referendum is being held this (MON) evening. The bond would pay for needed additions at the district’s 2 campuses due to a projected rise in enrollment in the coming years. The elementary school in Lake Crystal would get a 15,000 square-foot classroom addition and gymnasium, as well as energy efficient boilers, and the secondary school would receive a 20,000 square-foot addition and a new gym. The tax impact on a $100,000 home would reportedly be $42 per-year. The referendum election will be held on August 12th. This evening’s public hearing on the referendum begins at 7pm in the Lake Crystal Wellcome Memorial Secondary School Cafetorium. Another meeting will be held this Wednesday at 7 at the Rapidan Town Hall.
