The West Fargo School Board unanimously approved the district holding a spring referendum for four building projects Wednesday.

It means the taxpayers can officially expect an election May 19 asking for $65 million.

"But that doesn't mean we'll spend that," said board member Angela Korsmo. "We don't need to spend it all."

The district is required to inform the community within 40 days of a referendum, said Board President Tom Gentzkow.

"That just gives us the procedural notice to be able to notify everyone in the voting district that they could see a referendum on May 19," he added.

Before the May election, the district will hold its last advisory committee meeting with parents, teachers and students April 1. Then they will host five public open forums throughout the month, starting April 2.
