White Lake School District Goes To Referendum
Voters in the White Lake school district will go to the polls in April to decide whether to extend school district operating funds.
The Langlade county district is ending a three year approval to spend $200,000 over state limits, and District Administrator Bill Fisher says a similar request will be on the ballot...
"....the (White Lake) board approved going to a referendum for non-recurring purposes, $250,000 per year for three years for the purposes of maintaining basic programs...."
White Lake voters have approved referendums regularly since 2001.
The vote will be held April 1.
Fisher recently spoke before the Speaker's Task Force On Rural Schools about how the lack of state support creates issues smaller districts must work around.
