Although a majority of voters were in favor of the project, the vote on March 21, 2017, fell short of the required 60 percent.

“We listened to what the voters were telling us,” Superintendent Scott Privratsky said. The committee went back to the drawing board and cut the project dramatically while still meeting the needs of the school system.

The project total cost changed from $9M to just over $6M and the mills changed from 14.42 to 9.9.

The new construction will be reduced by 4,334 square feet and remodeling square footage is reduced by 3,306 square feet.

The estimated tax impact of 9.99 mills: $44.94 per year for each $100,000 residential taxable valuation and .39 per acre of cropland, based on a total of 20 years.

This modified plan goes to a vote on Oct. 2, 2018.
