A pair of ballot questions in the Adrian Public Schools district both received the approval of voters Tuesday night.
The first question in the district’s special election asked voters to approve a $300,000, 10-year capital project levy. Funds will be used for improvements in technology, curriculum/equipment, safety and security and deferred maintenance. The vote on that question was unofficially 178 yes and 80 no.
The second question on the ballot was for a general obligation bond for $5.335 million to be paid over 20 years. Money is designated toward roof systems, playground equipment and cement work/retaining walls. The vote on that question was unofficially 177 yes and 81 no.
In Worthington Independent School District 518, voters had one candidate for school board on their ballots to consider. Matt Widboom, who was appointed to fill the seat vacated by Brad Shaffer earlier this year, was running unopposed for a one-year term. Unofficial vote totals Wednesday morning had Widboom with 180 votes, with 15 write-ins. Voter turnout was minimal; there were 6,453 registered voters in the district as of 7 a.m. Tuesday.
The Martin County West school district, meanwhile, saw both of its special election questions fail. One question, which asked for $63 million for a new pre-K-12 school, was unofficially defeated 911-861. The other, which asked for $9 million for construction of a 400-seat auditorium and additional gym on to the school, was defeated by unofficial totals of 722-656.
