Durand Exceed Revenue Limit (2008)
The Durand Exceed Revenue Limits referendum was on the April 1, 2008 ballot in the School District of Durand, which is in Pepin County. The purpose of the referendum was to exceed the state-set revenue cap by $400,000 per year for three years (totaling $1,200,000 overall), with the additional funds being directed to the school budget. Use of the additional funds would have been at the determination of the School Board.
