Referendum vote coming for Hillsboro

Voters in Hillsboro will consider two referendum questions on the fall ballot.

The first part is an operating referendum.

It would renew a prior referendum set to expire next year.

The second part is a $3.7 million facilities question addressing needs identified in a 2017 facilities assessment.

If approved, school buildings will be upgraded, as well as made ADA compliant.

“We have original boilers that were installed in 1964, 65, they were expected to last 30 years which puts them at maybe 94, 95. We’re in 2018, the math will show that they’ve done their work,” said Curt Bisarek, Superintendent of the Hillsboro School District.

The school district will host an informational meeting October 24th at Hillsboro High School.
