GREENFIELD — The Mt. Vernon School referendum, the third in four years, will be on the May 6 ballot.
The Hancock County Election Board officially approved the addition of the referendum question to the ballot at a meeting Thursday. The vote was a formality after the MV School Board endorsed the idea of a referendum last month.
But the vote officially sets in motion the campaign to raise property taxes for the next three years to pay off the district’s short-term debt. That effort has been boosted in recent days by endorsements from two town councils.
