South Washington County School District ISD833 has 3 questions on the Nov. 3, 2015 election ballot - an operating levy for $525 per student and two bond questions totaling $142.5 million. Voters should get informed on these questions. This year, there are groups that are promoting the referendum's passage and opposing the referendum. This is good news for voters as it means they have an opportunity to hear both the pros and the cons of the referendum and can be fully educated on the issues.
The South Washington County Bulletin newspaper has published an article about the referendum and the two campaign committees.
