SANBORN – The turnout was small but enough to approve an $18 million capital project referendum for the Niagara-Wheatfield Central School District on Tuesday.
The measure to repair and renovate every building in the district was passed by a 361-75 vote, school officials said. The voter turnout was one of the lightest in recent memory.
Design work is expected to begin immediately with approval for the first phase being requested from the State Education Department in Albany and construction slated for next summer. The school board is expected to discuss the project at its meeting Wednesday, Nov. 16.
