Newmarket residents
vote down new school

NEWMARKET— After residents voted against a $45 million proposal to replace the existing school for junior high and high school students, officials are inviting the community to help address issues.

The School Board plans to discuss the matter during at next meeting, which is March 20 at 7 p.m. in Town Council Chambers at the Town Hall, 186 Main St.

"It will be up to the School Board to provide direction on what we do next," Superintendent Jim Hayes said. "I am sure they would welcome hearing from citizens about this."

The $45,125,263 bond in Article 2 only received 49.5 percent of the 3,176 ballots cast. It failed to reach a simple majority as well as the 60 percent supermajority — or 1,906 votes — required to pass. It failed 1,605-1,571.
