Gibraltar Voters Will See New Type Of Referendum On Ballot



In addition to casting ballots for President, U.S. Senator and other offices, voters in Gibraltar November 6 will be also be making a decision on a school referendum.

But unlike previous referendums, this $2,875,000 override referendum is of the recurring variety, meaning it won't expire.  

Sturgeon Bay Superintendent Joe Stutting says recurring referendums are great if school districts get them passed, but given the state's current funding formula there's no guarantee that there won't be another one down the road.

Stutting says such referendums are "a little bit harder sale" with taxpayers and are approved less than 50% of the time.

But he says school districts have been forced to lean more heavily on referendums -- either recurring or non-recurring -- since the state imposed revenue limits in 1993.

The Gibraltar School Board made the decision June 25 to go with a recurring referendum, with all members except Mike Peot voting in favor of it.

Gibraltar's existing referendum (also for $2,875,000) expires after the current school year.
