Daily Reporter Reports Election Board Certifies Mt. Vernon School Referendum

From the Greenfield Daily Reporter:

The Mt. Vernon School referendum, the third in four years, will be on the May 6 ballot.

The Hancock County Election Board officially approved the addition of the referendum question to the ballot at a meeting Thursday. The vote was a formality after the MV School Board endorsed the idea of a referendum last month.

But the vote officially sets in motion the campaign to raise property taxes for the next three years to pay off the district’s short-term debt. That effort has been boosted in recent days by endorsements from two town councils.
