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.
