Bond proposal denied to improve school

Residents in Delta and Menominee Counties turned down a bond proposal that would help remodel the Bark River-Harris School District’s building.

YES — 125

NO — 577

Voter turnout:  28%

The proposal would have allowed the district to borrow up to $3.58 million, and issue general obligation unlimited tax bonds for building on additions at the school, remodeling the school building, and developing and improving the site’s playgrounds.

Superintendent Jason Lockwood said the issues the district is facing are still prevalent, and the school board will go back to the drawing board to re-evaluate the proposal.
