Voters appear to have approved a $140 million dollar bond referendum for school repairs and new sports facilities in Hinsdale.


SCHOOL REFERENDUMS

Voters have approved a $140 million bond referendum for school repairs and new sports facilities in Hinsdale Township High School District 86.

The funds would help pay for upgrades to the district's two high schools - Central and South. District officials have already cut sports teams at both schools, saying the programs and repairs were too expensive without extra funding.

As a result of the referendum passing, the Board will meet at 6 p.m. Wednesday to begin the process of modernizing District 86 facilities.

In Lisle District 202, voters appear to have rejected a proposed cut of nearly $2 million from the district's budget that would have dropped it from roughly $19 million to $17 million. That referendum was made possible by a new state law that lets voters weigh in on the percentage of a school's budget paid for with property taxes.
