Posted at 11:45 a.m. on December 19, 2019 The Brillion News WRIGHTSTOWN – In unanimous votes on Wednesday evening, December 18, the Wrightstown Community School District Board of Education approved two companion motions that set a referendum vote for the April 7, 2020, general election. At issue is a $28.7 million proposal for additions to the elementary school, a small addition to the middle school building, infrastructure upgrades at all three schools, and campus security upgrades. The question is a “not to exceed” request. The actual final designs for the proposed capital investments have not been established. Superintendent Carla Buboltz said the district will be running a comprehensive information campaign, but it cannot ask for a “yes” vote by district electors. The April 7 election also features county board and municipal elections, as well as the state’s presidential preference primary. It is expected to draw a heavy voter turnout. The district includes all or portions of the Village of Wrightstown and the towns of Brillion, Kaukauna, Morrison, Holland, Wrightstown, Rockland and Lawrence. A complete story on the school board’s decision will be featured in the December 26 print edition of THE BRILLION NEWS.
Posted at 11:40 a.m. on October 22, 2019 The Brillion News HILBERT – The condition of the Hilbert School District Stadium playing field is too poor for Friday night’s WIAA Division 7 first-round football playoff game to take place there. Because of that, this FRIDAY’S GAME BETWEEN HILBERT AND ROSHOLT HAS BEEN MOVED TO THE BRILLION STADIUM, at Brillion Middle School. The game time remains 7 p.m. The players were caked in mud after last Friday’s game, and the field was a muddy mess.
