Two Say Yes, Two Say No

Share this post

Based on preliminary, unofficial tallies, residents of the Munster and Wheeler/Union Township school districts voted yes yesterday in special elections to raise property taxes for school funding. In Munster, the votes were about 65-percent in favor.  In Munster, about 5,400 people cast ballots on Tuesday.  In Union Township, the turnout was a little over 1,800. A similar referendum appears to have failed by a margin of just four votes in Boone Township/Hebron, where about 11-hundred people went to the polls for the special election... and in Knox, where school officials were seeking approval for a project costing up to 16-million dollars to renovate a 60-year-old wing of their elementary school, various reports say voters said no, the construction referendum failing by about 100 votes with just over a-thousand votes cast.  You can hear each of the school superintendents discussing the referendums here online at News Audio on Demand.
