Turner board approves April referendum on new high school
TOWN OF BELOIT--Beloit Turner School District voters will decide this spring whether to build a $28 million, 600-student high school.
School board President Doug Clark explained to about 30 audience members why the time is right for the project before the board unanimously approved an April 2 referendum during a special meeting Tuesday night.
About a dozen residents spoke with a mix of supportive and skeptical comments, along with many questions about the scope of the project and the impact of increasing open enrollment.
The tax impact is estimated to be an extra $144 per $100,000 of property valuation annually for 20 years. The district would take out three loans, one each year starting in 2013, with an average interest rate of about 3.5 percent.
