Timeline: A look back at Goodhue’s referendum
Just seven months ago, the voters of Goodhue rejected a $30 million referendum that would go toward overall school improvements, 500-449.
Now the voters will be asked again, this time on Nov. 6, to consider a slightly altered proposal.
Voters will be asked two questions at the polls to consider:
- The first asks voters to support a general obligation school buildings bond that will not exceed $26.985 million.
- The second question, which will only be pass if the first question does, asks voters to add $2.025 million to be included, bringing the total to $29.010 million. The money would go toward efficient building space underneath the cafeteria, elevated walking track in one of the gyms, and additional classrooms.
The district wasted little time after failing back in May, gathering a large group of citizens and educators to figure out what they can do to pass the referendum.
