ELECTION 2013: Referendum measure for Jefferson bond issue fails
WHEATON – A referendum measure to build a new Jefferson Early Childhood Center in Wheaton has failed with about 60 percent of votes cast against the measure, according to unofficial vote totals.
The referendum measure asked voters to approve the building of a new center and the issuance of bonds to the amount of $17.6 million by the district to pay for it.
Jefferson mainly serves 3- and 4-year-olds in the district with developmental disabilities. The question was brought to voters in light of problems with the current facility including a lack of handicapped accessibility, insufficient bathroom facilities and classroom space, heating and cooling issues, lack of parking, and unsafe pickup/drop-off traffic flow.
