Spring primary ballot will include school referendum in West Salem

West Salem referendum vote coming in Wisconsin spring primaries

WEST SALEM, Wis. (WKBT) - Polls are open Tuesday for the Wisconsin Spring Primaries and residents of West Salem will see a school referendum on the ballot.

The West Salem School District is asking to move $1.5 million from the middle school project to other district projects.

The district is able to move the funds because the middle school project is ahead of schedule and under budget.

The referendum will help complete renovations to the high school's automotive lab and construction of the new athletics facilities.

"This additional money is really going to allow us to finish the project, where before we thought we would be partially done and then be able to sort of chip away at it, but I think we'll be able to get it all done now," said Superintendent Troy Gunderson.

Voting yes on the referendum will not impact taxes because the money would be moving from one project to another.

Polls are open across the state Tuesday, Feb. 20th from 7 in the morning until 8 at night.
