Bangor looking to school referendum

Voters in the Bangor School District will consider an operating referendum on the November ballot.

The $2.5 million operating referendum would mirror the amounts from the 2016 referendum.

If approved, funds will go towards maintaining current student services and staffing levels.

Changes to the district’s budget would need to be made if the referendum fails.

“In any school setting, when 75 to 80 percent of your operating budget is on salary and benefits, we’d obviously have to look at that area,” said Dave Laehn, Superintendent of the Bangor School District.

The three year referendum would run through the 2021 – 2022 school year.
