Voters in the Braham Area School District will be deciding on a tax-neutral bond referendum early next month.
Braham Superintendent Ken Gagner said the money will be used to improve aging school buildings.
"We have two buildings. One was built in '66. One was built in '73," Gagner said. "They are just showing their age. If you think about your own home, there are things that just fail. Their useful life is over, and that's what this bond is about entirely."
The district is looking for $10.9 million to help with facility improvements including heating, building ventilation, electrical upgrades, and parking lots.
The school district will be holding informational meetings at the Braham High School at 5:00 p.m. on January 7, 21, and 24 to give voters more information and answer any questions about the measure.
According to Gagner, if the levy passes, taxes would remain the same because this new debt would replace debt from previous renovations done by the district in the 1990s that has been paid off.
The referendum vote will be will be held on Tuesday, February 8, at Braham City Hall. However, early voting can be done at the district office.
