WESTERN WAYNE BOARD TO VOTE ON REFERENDUM WEDNESDAY NIGHT

(Cambridge City, IN)--At 6 o’clock Wednesday night, the Western Wayne School Board will decide whether or not to put a referendum on the May ballot that would increase revenue for the school but would also result in a property tax increase for those who live in the district.  Western Wayne, like most other area schools, has experienced declining enrollment.  Western Wayne’s enrollment is down by 355 from the mid ‘90’s.  In the last five years, the school has stayed afloat by taking more than a million dollars from the Rainy Day Fund.  But that fund is now drying up.  The school has said it could be out of money by as soon as 2023.
