By Charles Collier, The Denmark News

The Denmark School District on Tuesday night passed two referendum questions each with more than 65% of the vote.

The first question on the ballot was to allow $14.9 million in general obligation bonds for facility upgrades and new structures, namely a new gymnasium. 68% percent of voters said yes.

The second question would allow the district to exceed the state revenue limit by $925,000 for three years to maintain its current level of operation. 70% of voters agreed.

According to the district, approval of both questions will cost taxpayers $34 for every $100,000 of property value.
