Mequon-Thiensville school district asking voters to approve facilities referendum

 The Mequon-Thiensville School District says it needs more than $18 million for repairs to school buildings.

It's hoping to convince voters to say yes on the facilities referendum April 7th.

At a special meeting Wednesday, members of the public were shown photos of missing tiles from the floor and bathrooms at Homestead High School.

The district says it has not been able to keep up with requirements for disabled access.

\"It will be great for the community to see the upgrades and help education is what we need,\" Mequon parent Tina Perry told CBS 58 News.

Voting yes on the referendum would cost the owner of a $250,000 home about $42 more in annual property taxes.
