Hilbert considers adding referendum to spring ballot

HILBERT — The Hilbert School District Board of Education will gather feedback from residents before deciding whether to try a building referendum for a third time.

Board President Ray Mueller said the board likely will vote during its regular meeting Dec. 18 whether to place the proposed K-12 campus plan, which voters turned down by a narrow margin of eight votes in November, on a spring election ballot.

Other possible courses of action for the board are scheduling a referendum with changes, or deciding not to pursue another referendum during this school year.

Facilities committee chairman Ken Stenklyft said district residents are invited to attend the committee’s next meeting, which begins at 5:30 p.m. Monday at the Hilbert High School library. Discussion will center on reviewing the referendum proposal.

“It’s fresh in everybody’s mind right now,” Stenklyft said. “I heard from numerous people within the community that we should be coming back with the same plan.”
