In February voters will once again go to the polls for a referendum in the Indian River School District.

And they will be asked to pay an additional $91.37 a year in taxes.

The money will go toward building a new Sussex Central High school and additional classroom at Indian River High School and Selbyville Middle School.

Superintendent Mark Steele told WBOC that the district has scoured the budget for every single dime that could be saved.

But, he added, he saw no alternative to going back to the voters.

Last March voters approved modified $7 million referendum last March after it failed in a November 2016 vote.

Voters will go to the polls next February 19th.
