Jump to: navigation, search

The Rubicon Exceed Revenue Limit was a school bond issue on the September 9 ballot in the Rubicon Joint #6 School District, which is in both Dodge and Washington counties. The purpose of the referendum was to exceed state-set revenue limits by $150,000 per year for three years (totaling $450,000 overall). The additional funds will be used to help pay basic operating costs of the school.

"The owner of a $100,000 home will see an additional $19 on their tax bill in the first year; $13 the second year and $66 in the third and final year."[1]
