Those who cast ballots in Pecatonica will not only be voting for local officials, they will also vote yes or no on a school referendum.
The Pecatonica district made multiple cuts last year including elementary school art, 6th grade sports, and vocational technical programs.
Pecatonica schools are now trying to restore some of those programs and improve on existing structures by passing a referendum. The referendum would add an additional $214 in taxes to a home valued around $100,000.
The last time Pecatonica successfully passed a referendum was during the 1992-93 school year.
