COLD SPRING -- Voters in the ROCORI school district will be asked to head to the polls for a special vote in November.

The district will be asking voters to approve some new technology for their schools, they approved the previously discussed levy of $250,000 a year for between five and 10 years.

Superintendent Scott Staska says, they want to keep up with standards.

"Instead of having seven to nine-year-old computers we can move that cycle up and hopefully replace technology after five to seven years to get us more in line with industrial and commercial standards"

He added they want to make sure the community is involved and knows what they'll be getting with this referendum.

"We want to do things this fall to help share the information and background with key leaders within the district and the district as a whole."

Staska says, because they’ve refinanced their three existing levies, the tax impact on property owners would be minimal.

Polling places will be open from 7:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. on November 7 and located at:

  • Rockville City Hall
  • Cold Spring City Hall
  • Richmond Arena

If it passes, it would go into effect next year.
