The school board for Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) has unanimously voted to include two referendum questions totaling $350 million on the November ballot, asking Madison voters if they want to raise their own taxes and take on more debt.
One question will ask voters to approve $33 million in spending beyond revenue limits over the next four years. The other question will ask voters to consider taking on $317 million in debt, to be repaid over 22 years.
