Voters defeated a proposed building project upgrade for Margaretville Central School by 11-votes on March 13.
The low voter turnout saw the measure fall by a 66-55 margin.
The project would not have raised taxes, with funding coming from money that is already on hand — $424,806 from capital reserves and $75,194 in state Expanding Our Children’s Education (EXCEL) grant money.
The proposal included the following items:
• Repairs to the locker room drain and sections concrete floor and wall caused by settling after the 2004 building project.
