Constantine school officials will have to put together a financial plan to replace roofs at the district’s high school and its middle school, as a ballot request was turned down by district voters Tuesday.
Superintendent Joe Holloway said voter approval would have allowed the district to refinance bonds issued in the early 2000s. The result would have yielded $3.9 million to cover roof-replacement costs.
Holloway said the district will have to consider whether to use cash on hand to pay for the two projects.
According to unofficial results, the ballot proposal was turned down, 498 opposed to 373 in favor. Ballot numbers include precincts from Cass County’s Mason, Newberg and Porter townships.
Constantine has more than 1,350 students
