ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Local community advocates are asking for votes to help fund District 205's facilities plan.
The group, “Better Schools, Brighter Future” officially launched its campaign in Rockford today. The goal is to build voter support for a referendum that would allow District 205 to sell $139 million in bonds. The money will help pay for school upgrades over the next five years and will not increase taxes. The question will be on the November ballot.
