PULASKI, WI (WTAQ) - Almost 30 Wisconsin school districts will hold referendums Tuesday.

The biggest is in the Middleton-Cross Plains district, where voters will be asked to approve $60 million for additions and renovations to a pair of middle schools.

The Milwaukee suburb of Franklin has three referendum questions totaling $49 million. The proposals include a two-story addition to Franklin High School, additional space for art and music instruction and a new auditorium, plus a new gym for the middle school.

In the Green Bay area, Pulaski voters are being asked to approve $33 million for various school renovations and technology upgrades – plus a new athletic complex.

Antigo school voters will decide the fate of a new $26 million elementary school, including extra operating costs.

Lake Mills proposed almost $19 million to replace an elementary school. And East Troy has a $17 million referendum for high school renovations.

A number of school districts will ask voters to exceed their state-mandated taxing limits. Marshfield is asking for the most – $2.5 million a year for four years.
