The Mineral Point School District Referendum was a school bond measure on the April 7 ballot in the Mineral Point School District which is in Iowa County. The referendum was brought to the ballot by the school board, and it sought to exceed state-set revenue limits by $1,000,000. The additional funds will be used to maintain current levels of operations. A similar, though larger, referendum was on the ballot in 2008, where it was defeated. Read about that measure here: Mineral Point Exceed Revenue Limit (2008).
