A long debate to close Lincoln

DIXON – Despite mounting financial pressures, the Dixon school board's decision to close Lincoln Elementary was not made quickly or easily. Board members voted 4-2 during the third hour of their meeting Wednesday to close the district's oldest building. John Jacobs and Terry Shroyer voted against the closing. Kevin Sward was absent. Josh Arduini, who voted to close the school, wanted to explore a ballot referendum to give Dixon residents the chance to vote on a tax increase to keep the school open.
