Voters approved the Swanville Public School’s operating and capital project levy and referendum, Tuesday, Nov. 5.

    Voters had two proposals from the school to vote on. One was to raise the operating referendum from $38.31 per student to $85.34, an increase of $47.03. By raising the operating referendum, the school would be able to receive $460 per student, which is the maximum it can receive in state aid.

    The operating referendum passed 252 to 78.

    The second proposal the school had was to increase the capital project levy from $50,000 to $75,000, an increase of $25,000.     

    The funds would be used to update and improve the technology devices that both the students and the teachers use.

    The proposed capital project levy passed 225 yes to 105.

    “I am happy with the results and I am really happy with that it wasn’t close. We are very grateful to all of our voters for their support of our school,” said Supt. Gene Harthan.
