Byron gets its school

By David Richards

It passed.

Byron's new school referendum passed Tuesday, March 11 with 1,071 votes in favor and 839 votes against.

As a result, the district will move forward with plans to build a $25 million new school to house pre-kindergarten through second grades.

The building is expected to open during the 2016-2017 school year.

"We're very happy," said Jennifer Walsh, of Byron Public Schools. "A tremendous amount of work goes into an effort like this."

Walsh said the next step is to form a committee made up of district staff and community members to help with the planning/design of the project.

"We really have nothing on paper at this point," Walsh said, about what the school will look like.

The referendum sailed through the City of Byron voters, where it passed by a 692-392 margin. It struggled, as expected, in the townships, where some rural residents might be leery of tax hikes on their agriculture land.

Kalmar township voted no 141-131, while Salem voted no as well, 266-208.
