Vote yes on Gavin school referendum

On Nov. 6, Gavin School District 37 will be asking the community to say Yes to a referendum in the amount of $6 million. Taxpayers will see a decrease in their taxes of approximately $30 for a $200,000 home in the district, even if the referendum passes.

A YES vote would mean that funding for much-needed life safety repairs and replacements, which include roof and parking lot repairs, HVAC upgrades and asbestos abatement. The funding also would provide technology upgrades, including modern facilities for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) instruction and learning as well adding more secure entries to both schools.

By keeping the scope of the work focused on certain repairs/replacements, this will ensure that our two schools continue to be utilized now and into the future.
