INDIANAPOLIS - Three school districts looking to raise taxes to help pay the bills declared victories Tuesday night.
Voters approved referendums for the Metropolitan School District of Decatur Township, the Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation and Eminence Community Schools.
Decatur Township officials released a statement following the news of the results:
"We are grateful that the residents of Decatur Township decided to invest in our schools, our children and our community by approving this referendum," said Dr. Prusiecki, Superintendent of the MSD of Decatur Township. "We asked the community to choose between making drastic cuts to balance the budget, or approving this additional property tax. Today, Decatur Township residents have empowered us to continue providing the high quality education and services that we are proud to deliver and that this community deserves. We take this responsibility seriously and vow to be good stewards of this additional revenue."
Officials said Mt. Vernon's ballot issue only passed by 10 votes.
