MERRILL (WAOW) -- The Merrill school board decided against placing an advisory referendum on the ballot this spring.

Board members said they don't want to pit different schools' programs against each other.

The school board president said they will find out how much money the state will give them towards the end of the month and they will decide what to do with their budget deficit at that time.

The district could lose nearly 10% of its budget for the 2011-2012 school year.
