Kiel Technology Improvements (2008)
The Kiel Technology Improvements 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 $650,000 per year through 2019 (totaling $6,500,000 overall), with the additional funds going to the school budget. The funds would have been used to expand on programs previously approved in 1999, including basic operational costs and improvements to technology.
