DURAND, Wis. (WEAU) – Voters in the Durand School District will decide whether to approve a three-year, $600,000 referendum on Tuesday.

The district's superintendent says the referendum would cost homeowners about $42 for every $100,000 in property they own. Property taxes would decrease by $72 for every $100,000 in property even if the referendum passes, because the district just retired a bond debt from a school remodel in 1992.

Superintendent Greg Doverspike says the district wants to maintain its buildings to avoid more costly fixes down the road.

“As homeowners, we all understand the importance of maintaining our home,” he said. “These buildings are the home of the School District of Durand and the importance to maintain them. The roofs, the parking lots and some of those kinds of things, cause if that stuff does go bad, it's going to cost a lot more money to get it fixed.”

The maintenance would include two big roofing projects.
