HLWW Special Election 22 May 13

Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted Public Schools will place a two-question ballot before voters in a special election Thursday.

The Herald Journal reports the questions ask voters to approve two projects for improvement of school facilities at a total cost just over $26.6-million.

Question 1 asks voters to authorize the district to issue about $19.8-million in general obligation bonds for construction of a new middle school and partial demolition and repair to the existing middle school.

If question 1 is approved, voters will be asked to authorize the district to issue just over $5.8-million in general obligation bonds for renovation and additions to Humphrey Elementary and Winsted Elementary Schools.

The combined polling place for all precincts Thursday will be the High School in Howard Lake, with polls open from 7am until 8pm.
