Oconto Falls Sports Facilities Referendum (2008)
The Oconto Falls Sports Facilities Referendum was a school bond issue on the November 4 ballot in the Oconto Falls School District, which is in Oconto County. The purpose of the referendum was to issue debt in the amount of $4,595,000, with the funds going to the school budget. The funds would have been used to construct new football, track and softball fields for the high school, and for improvements to the Memorial Field baseball site.
Oconto Falls had an additional referendum on the ballot for $20,000 per year to cover the costs of the new sports facilities. See Oconto Falls Exceed Revenue Limits (2008). Both measures were defeated.
