Cloquet to Build New Multi-Million Dollar Middle School
New Auditorium Proposal Fails
The snowy weather yesterday didn’t stop Cloquet voters from deciding whether to approve a multi-million dollar school referendum.
The votes are in and counted and Cloquet will be building a new $48 million middle school.
According to the school superintendent, $14 million is the price tag on small repairs to keep the 100-year-old school up and running.
The second question on the referendum didn’t pass, so a new $6.92 dollar 800-seat auditorium will not be built.
Fox 21 is told it’ll cost the average Cloquet taxpayer about $10 a month.
The district posted a tax calculator to determine property tax increase.
