GREENDALE, Wis. — The Greendale Village Board of Trustees very much wants to rid itself of a request to remove polling places from schools.

It wants the School Board’s idea, which progressed to a referendum approved in July, to simply disappear. To go poof, like a puff of air.

“If the (School Board’s) letter was completely rescinded … there is nothing to have a referendum about because there is no letter,” Trustee Ronald Barbian said. “Why would you have a referendum?”
