A proposal to place on the November ballot the extension of the Martin School District’s $11 million bond project failed Monday night in a 3-3 vote.
Board members were considering extending the bond with no increase, but four votes were needed for passage in order to put the question before voters in the November general election.
Board members Melanie Conley, Julie Pallet and Rodney Pillars voted in opposition and Art Shook, Rosemary Andrews and Austin Marsman voted in support. Vince Tuinstra was absent.
Trustee Marsman said, “There is always an option to bring it up again for the following election in May (2022). Voters will be deciding on an operating millage renewal in August to keep the lights on and doors open.”
