Residents learn about La Crescent referendum

Posted: Updated:
La Crescent, MN (WXOW) -

La Crescent-Hokah residents weighed in on the upcoming referendum question to sell the current elementary school building and turn it into senior housing.

Monday night residents had a chance to learn more about the decision made by the school board last week. They voted to sell the current elementary school and build a senior housing facility.

But that would happen only if a referendum authorizing the city to raise funds for a new elementary school passes in January.

If the referendum passes, the school district is hoping to be in the new elementary school by December of 2016.

There are two more public meetings for residents to learn about the referendum. The next one is Tuesday, December 2nd at 7 p.m. at the Hokah Learning Center Gym. The third and final public meeting is on Monday, December 15th at 7 p.m. at the La Crescent High School Cafeteria.
