RHINELANDER, THREE LAKES, NORTHLAND PINES
- Tuesday, three local school districts will ask whether you'll support them by raising your property taxes. Rhinelander, Three Lakes and Northland Pines school districts are headed for a referendum election.Rhinelander is asking for $4 million per year through 2016.Without that money, some electives, activities, and charter schools will be cut.Three Lakes is asking for $2.34 million per year through 2018.
If that referendum doesn't pass, Northland Pines or Rhinelander will likely absorb the district, meaning taxes will probably go up no matter what.Northland Pines wants $2.7 million per year through 2016 to maintain technology and other district programs.The distict hasn't outlined what cuts they would have to make.Polls are open Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
