Voters Approve $42 Million in School Construction
Published by the NJ School Board Association
Voters in five New Jersey school districts approved $42 million in school construction proposals on Jan. 26, including security enhancements, heating system renovations and athletic facility improvements. Construction proposals appeared on ballots in six districts, in five counties: Burlington, Cape May, Hunterdon, Monmouth and Union. All of the approved projects will receive state funding to cover part of the cost, through grants or debt service aid or both.
In addition, in one district, Lakewood, in Ocean County, voters defeated a question that sought to authorize raising an extra $6.2 million in taxes for student busing.
