Barrington Area Unit District 220 board members intend to vote Tuesday, Aug. 13 on whether to place a question on the ballot early next year seeking voter permission to borrow money to fund building projects. The meeting is set for 6:30 p.m. at District 220's administrative center, 515 W. Main St. in Barrington. Board members will need to decide a dollar amount and projects for the planned March 17 referendum. It would be the second time in about a year the district went to voters for funds. Voters in April defeated a measure seeking to raise property taxes to pay for $185 million in building projects. If the board can't decide the issue Tuesday, the elected officials would return for a special meeting at the administrative center 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15.
