Devils Lake Voters Say Yes to $27 Million Referendum for School Improvements

In Devils Lake, North Dakota, a $27.7 million referendum passed to renovate two schools, with an impressive 64% margin of approval. The renovations will include upgrades to Central Middle School and Prairie View Elementary School, aiming to address various infrastructure and accessibility issues. The community’s strong support for the referendum is commendable, and Superintendent Ned Clooten expressed his gratitude. The project’s next steps involve meetings and a detailed design process, with construction anticipated to start in spring 2025.

Commentary: It’s an notable outcome if we’re to believe those favoring the elimination of property taxes. Apparently, a majority of voting citizens of Devils Lake are willing to bear more taxes if it means improving their community strategically.
