Letter: Round Lake, Brewster districts should consolidate
Why should Round Lake and Brewster consolidate? Our children will continue to have an excellent LOCAL elementary school with a local school board. Decisions made regarding the building and equipment in Round Lake would be made by our local school board. There would still be continued local control of our tax base.
With consolidation, the new district's territory will be able to maintain a viable preK-8 school.
Consolidation between Brewster and Round Lake is what is best for our children and communities. We encourage all Round Lake and Brewster school district residents to vote YES for our children and for our communities on Tuesday.
The polling places are at Brewster School Gym in Brewster and at the High School Cafeteria in Round Lake. The special election will be from 3 to 8 p.m. at those locations. Absentee voting will be handled through the Nobles County Auditor-Treasurer's office in Worthington. Thank you.
