-Remodeling designs and adding a referendum to the spring elections was approved at the Owen-Withee School Board Meeting on Monday.

The Board reviewed the design plan created by Somerville Architects that includes improvements to the Tech Ed/Ag Ed area and gymnasium, additions of a cafeteria/auditorium and science facilities and the acquisition of furniture, fixtures and equipment for the improved/added spaces. The Board approved the design on a 7-0 vote.
