A referendum asking district voters for authority to exceed the revenue cap by $1.3 million yearly on a non-recurring basis over three years was approved by the Ellsworth School Board at a public forum Monday.


Although differences among speakers from the forum's audience about how to address school financial difficulties surfaced during the two-and-a-half hour session, the board ultimately felt the override proposal should go up for a vote at the Tuesday, April 5, election. As the evening progressed, comments from people in attendance, who nearly filled the seating in the high school cafetorium, trended away from making almost $1 million in budget cuts, which has also been proposed.
