A Reedsburg Kindergarten funding referendum, also known as "Question #2," was on the April 7 ballot in Reedsburg, which is in Sauk County. The measure is paired on the ballot with another Reedsburg funding referendum, "Question #1".

The district is seeking permission to exceed the state revenue limits from 2009-2010 through 2012. The measure will provide $400,000 in each year for funding a kindergarten program for 4-year-olds.

Status

Defeated, with 999 "yes" votes and 2,240 "no" votes.[1]

Financial impact

The district estimates a tax increase of $65 for each $100,000 of assessed property tax value in 2009-2010. That amount drops to $17 and $18 in the following two years respectively.[2]
