Voters in the Jonesville School District shot down the bond proposal by a narrow margin in Tuesday’s election.
The proposal failed by fewer than 30 votes. The unofficial tally was 594-“NO” to 567-“YES.”
The total includes a handful of votes from Jackson County’s Pulaski Township.
The District had asked voters to approve an extension of the current millage rate of 8.29, which would have amounted to $11.6 million-dollars for improvements to security and technology, along with upgrades to athletic facilities.
Just shy of 27-percent of the district’s 4,314 registered voters turned out for the election, which was the only issue on the ballot in Hillsdale County!
Officials had gone back to the drawing board after voters shot down a large bond request back in 2021.
