Moraine Park Hosts West Bend Community Forum

Moraine Park Technical College hosted a Community Forum on the West Bend campus today, Sept. 26, regarding the College’s referendum in the November election.

The Moraine Park Technical College District Board passed a resolution in June stating an intent to borrow $55 million to enhance campus learning spaces to meet future student and regional workforce needs through four projects across Moraine Park campuses and communities. In August, the Board approved the final ballot language, allowing the College to move forward with a referendum in the November election. Under state law, technical colleges must hold referendums before completing capital projects with a cost of more than $1.5 million.

Moraine Park’s Community Forums are an opportunity for the public to ask questions and learn more about the referendum. Moraine Park President Bonnie Baerwald presented about the referendum, and the forum ended with a Q&A.

The College will host its third forum on the Beaver Dam campus on Oct. 3 from 9-10 a.m.
