DAVIS JUNCTION (WIFR)-
District 205 isn't the only district looking to make improvements, so is the Meridian School District asking for $2M.
Today locals opposed the referendum asking for signatures from people of Ogle and Winnebago county to prevent having their taxes raised.
They need 565 votes for the issue to show up on the fall ballot or the district can automatically raise taxes.
Organizers of the deptition drive say residents can expect a tax increase of several hundred dollars.
The petition drive goes through january 21st.
