HILBERT – The voters in the School District of Hilbert could face a question, on the November ballot, about a referendum to make $8.26 million in improvements and additions to the district’s 4K-12 building at the corner of Eleventh and Milwaukee streets.

But there are a lot of hoops for any proposal to jump through prior to a decision to go to referendum.

The district administration created a Facility Committee to study the possibility of capital project enhancements to the existing building, and it last met on March 9.

Superintendent Tony Sweere said the district will probably hold community meetings in April or May to present a conceptual plan and get feedback from residents and taxpayers.

The Facility Committee has been working with McMahon architects and with C.D. Smith, the Fond du Lac construction firm that has done most of the recent capital projects at the school building.

Sweere said the school board would have to make a decision – thumbs up or down on going to a referendum in November – probably by August.
