4/2 Hartford Votes for Pool Upgrades

In addition to elected officials on Tuesday, residents in two county municipalities voted on referendums.  In Hartford, A five million dollar advisory referendum to replace Veterans Memorial Pool was approved.
The unofficial results from the Washington County Clerk’s office are 1,507 yes to 359 no. Because the referendum is only advisory and not binding, the decision to move ahead now rests with the Common Council.  Hartford city officials said Tuesday night it is likely to appear on the agenda at the next Hartford Common Council meeting. Given the fact that it passed with such a positive vote by the electors, it’s believed the council members may pass it. In the Rubicon School District, residents had two issues before them. The first question asked to exceed the revenue limit by $450,000 per year, starting with the 2014-15 school year and ending in the 2016-17 school year. It was defeated.  The second question, advisory in nature, asked voters if a resolution should be adopted to dissolve the district. That was also defeated.
