High school to survey residents on planned April referendum
By Dave Fidlin
Residents served by Waterford Union High School will be surveyed in the coming weeks as district officials contemplate an upcoming referendum question on the April ballot.
The WUHS School Board on Nov. 21 gave Superintendent Luke Francois the authority to undertake another community survey to gauge how much residents might be willing to pay, beyond the state’s levy caps, for a litany of identified facilities improvements.
Survey results, which could be revealed at the board’s December meeting, will play a role in determining how much the district will ask in the forthcoming referendum question.
This past April, WUHS presented voters with a $19.75 million facilities-related referendum. It was narrowly defeated with 2,308 “no” votes and 2,097 “yes” votes.
But district officials said the lengthy list of facilities-related improvements remain a top-of-mind concern.
