Letter about ...Rushford-Peterson Referendum

To the Editor,

We are writing to inform people about the upcoming referendum for Rushford-Peterson residents on Wednesday, December 19 from 11–8 pm in the Rushford-Peterson High School lobby. The request is for $15 million to build a new EC-5 building and refurbish the R-P elementary. The “Vote Yes” Committee requests support for this initiative for many reasons.

•Today’s low construction costs and interest rates make it a prudent time to build.

•This can also be a boom to the local economy as local businesses will be asked to bid on the construction project.

•Long term, the District will need to invest $10-12 million into the existing R-P High School building and $1.7 million into the Middle School facility. Investments in these buildings will only act as a temporary solution because the buildings’ age will continue to present new problems.

Some of the advantages of a new EC-5 facility will include:

•Better air quality;

•Safer Location (current location is located on main highway);

•Use of 21st century education spaces, while maximizing the use of technology;

•Lower maintenance, utility and transportation costs;

•Major improvement in green space for our younger children;

•One step closer to the long term plan of having the high school, middle school, and elementary school all on one site.

•The last investment in R-P facilities was 43 years ago! Most districts pass a referendum every 10 years.

•The local businesses and economy will benefit from a strong school district.

•The tax impact for the majority of residents with homesteads in our district will be less than or equal to the cost of a bottle of soda per day.

Please attend one of the two informational meetings for the public, November 26, 2012, from 4:30 to 6:30 pm at the Middle School in Peterson, or December 10, 2012, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm in the Elementary Cafeteria. You can also visit our website at www.voteyesr-p.org.

Our kids deserve better, our community deserves better. Please come out and vote YES.
