Kiel High School Auditorium Maintenance (2008)
The Kiel High School Auditorium Maintenance referendum was a school bond issue on the November 4 ballot in the School District of Kiel, which is in both Manitowoc and Calumet Counties. The purpose of the referendum was to exceed state-set revenue limits by $350,000 per year until 2019 (totaling $3,500,000 overall), with the funds going to the school budget. The additional funds would have been used for operational costs of the new high school auditorium.
