Oconto Falls voters approve $3.4M referendum; others show mixed results

OCONTO FALLS, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin school referendums had mixed results.

Voters in the Oconto Falls School District said yes to borrowing $3.4 million for various projects. They'll include an outdoor track, roof repairs, more computer access, and more funding for teachers.

71 percent of Brown Deer school voters agreed to refinance almost $4 million of previous obligations.

A $4 million referendum was defeated in the Blackhawk Technical College district near Janesville, which would have exceed the state-mandated taxing limit to keep current programs going. That vote was 57 to 43 percent against.

In southwest Wisconsin, voters in the North Crawford School District voted 505 to 199 against a $1.3 million package. It would have included a new school wellness center, classroom renovations, and related equipment. 

A referendum to exceed the state revenue caps was approved in Green Lake, while a similar one was rejected in Princeton.
