The Marinette School District is hosting one more virtual information session before their $30.9 million referendum goes to vote November 3rd. Due to falling enrollment trends and an under-utilization of their facilities, the district is seeking to consolidate their current six buildings to a new four-building configuration, which would also have them constructing additions at their Merryman and Park facilities, as well as performing necessary upgrades at the Middle and High Schools. District representatives say by going to four buildings, they’re estimated to save more than $20 million in costs over the next two decades. If the referendum is approved, it would add $0.93 to the mill rate, which equates to about an extra $93 in taxes annually for a property taxpayer in the district whose home is valued at $100000. The final online info session is being planned for tomorrow evening beginning at 6 p.m. You can get more information by visiting the Marinette School District’s website, marinette.k12.wi.us.
