Mountain Iron-Buhl School Dist. Referendum Passes

The votes are in and the future of the Mountain-Iron Buhl School District was decided by the voters Tuesday night.

According to district officials, 832 people voted ‘yes’ for the referendum to pass, while 510 voted ‘no.’

This means the district will not be fixing the current building that was built in the 1920s.

Instead, a new building will be construction, with roughly $54 a year extra in property taxes for a homeowner with a property value of $100,000.

That is considerably less than the $270 extra annually to fix the current building, according to district officials.
