Washington Island, Gibraltar look at posing spring referendum questions

Two Door County school districts could be asking you to help fund their operations as a part of the spring election. Both the Washington Island School District and Gibraltar Area School District are in the initial stages of the referendum process. The Washington Island School District Referendum Committee hosted its first meeting Friday after calling for volunteers to serve on it. They spent Friday analyzing how much may be needed and setting up an action plan. The district last went to an operational referendum approximately two years ago. Gibraltar Area Schools are looking at making capital improvements to the school for the first time since the districts last passed a referendum in 2018. While the last referendum project focused on its library and media center, Superintendent Brett Strousland said would address other parts of the building.

According to the Wisconsin Elections Commission, the deadline to file a copy of the referendum question with the county clerk’s office in time to appear on the spring general election ballot is January 25th, 2023.
