FULDA - School District 505 officials were busy counting ballots Tuesday evening as voters decided whether to approve a 10-year, $2,300 per pupil operating referendum.
Results of the vote were not available at press time.
Two public meetings on the referendum had been hosted by the district in advance of Tuesday’s vote. Superintendent Luther Onken told the Daily Globe last month that the referendum would simply maintain services currently offered in the district.
Should the referendum fail, Onken said, a failed referendum would mean cuts of $760,000-plus based on the district’s current enrollment of 340 students. Most of such a reduction would likely need to come from personnel, he added.
