Bangor schools heading to referendum vote



District asking for three-year
referendum of $2.5 million

The School District of Bangor is going to referendum Feb. 16.

Superintendent Dave Laehn said the decision came with some urgency, as the district’s existing three-year override authorization is set to expire.

“What we have been doing is spending as judiciously as possible the money that our district has from the last referendum,” Laehn said, “and we are just coming to the completion of the three-year referendum of $600,000 per year.”

Up for vote Feb. 16 is another three-year, nonrecurring referendum, where the district will ask for $800,000 the first two years and $900,000 the final year.
