Revenue cap override vote OK'd by PC board

PLUM CITY, Wis.--The Plum City School Board has approved a recurring referendum for the April 1 general election asking taxpayers to allow the district to exceed its revenue limits by $350,000 on a recurring basis for each of the 2008-2009, 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 school years.

Currently, due to declining enrollment, the district will receive less revenue from each of the previous budget years. With declining enrollment and rising general operational costs, the district will face operational reductions of nearly $1,000,000 over the next three years.

This would have a dramatic impact on the education the district would be able to provide the students of Plum City schools, according to officials.

The school board invites district residents to a Referendum Information Fair concerning the financial needs of the school district. These meetings will be held on Monday, March 10, and Tuesday, March 18, at 7 p.m. in the high school gymnasium.
