Many involved with the Taylorville School district and around Taylorville have been breathing a sigh of relief after the passing of the School Tax Referendum in last week’s local election. The referendum will allow the district to keep staff and school extracurricular programs that were set to be cut if the measure had failed.
Taylorville Superintendent Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau wanted to thank everyone who made the results of the referendum possible.
The district was able to reinstate all programs and staff that had been scheduled to be cut due to the results. The district will have to do some bridging with their budget however, as the money from the referendum won’t come in for several years.
Taylorville Superintendent Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
