Albany voters approve school referendum
ALBANY--Albany School District Superintendent Steve Guenther is happy he won’t be trying to draft another referendum or starting to plan for massive cuts next year.
District voters approved a referendum Tuesday by a vote of 796-692 to exceed the revenue cap by $1.64 million over three years.
“I think the community is very supportive of the school, but I think it comes down to whether or not people can afford it,” Guenther said.
The referendum asked for $520,000 in each of the next two school years, then $600,000 in the 2015-16 school year to pay for operating expenses because of decreasing state revenues.Click here for complete election information including stories, galleries, sample ballots, maps and more.
