Referendums On The April Fifth Ballot In Door County

Voters in three parts of Door County will be asked to weigh-in on referendum questions during the spring election April fifth.

In Ephraim, where liquor sales have been banned since the village was created, voters will be asked to consider two questions related to the sale of beer and wine.  A large segment of the business community is supportive of the idea, while some have registered their opposition.

Residents in the Sturgeon Bay School District are being asked to support a revenue limit override encompassing the next three school years.  Supporters says taxpayers in the district will be asked to increase their support by 38 dollars in the first year, 45 dollars in the second year and 58 dollars in the third year.  The additional funding will pay for educational programming for students.

The referendum involving the Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department proposes a two-point-eight million dollar facilities upgrade with the capability of housing a Door County ambulance in Brussels.  The projected increase on a 100 thousand dollar property has been pegged at 44 dollars.  The referendum is advisory and, if approved, would trigger a second vote at annual town meetings in Brussels, Union and Gardner on April 19th.
