Voters approve 2022-23 school budget; Ziehm re-elected to the Board of Education

May 17, 2022

On Tuesday, May 17, Cambridge CSD residents approved the district’s $23.9 million budget proposal for 2022-23 by a tally of 480 yes votes to 261 no votes. The budget passed with 65% approving the proposal.

By a vote of 572 to 145, voters approved the public library proposition.

By a vote of 507 to 240, voters approved a $441,500 proposition to lease four 70-passenger buses, which will maintain a replacement cycle on school vehicles. 

By a vote of 500 to 245, voters approved a proposition to establish a capital reserve fund. The fund cannot exceed $2,000,000 and has a probable term of 10 years. The fund will allow the district to plan for upcoming capital projects and minimize the impact those projects may have on taxpayers in the future.

In the Board of Education election, incumbent Jessica Ziehm (455 votes) was re-elected; she ran unopposed.

“I want to thank our community and taxpayers for continuing to support the district by approving the budget and the additional propositions,” said Superintendent Dr. Douglas Silvernell. “This budget will allow us to continue to provide all of our students with a high-quality education.”
