Martin County West Public School District is proposing a two-question bond referendum on Nov. 7.
The first ballot question would authorize $63 million in bonding authority to finance the construction of a new, PK-12 facility and the replacement of outdoor athletic facilities on the two existing school sites in Sherburn. The existing middle/high school in Sherburn, along with the two existing elementary schools -- in Sherburn and Trimont -- would all be demolished.
The second ballot question would authorize an additional $9 million in bonding authority to finance a 400-seat auditorium and an auxiliary gymnasium. The second ballot question is contingent upon passage of the first ballot question for a new school.
The projects would be scheduled for completion in calendar years 2024 through 2026.
