Two Board Seats, Multiple Resolutions, Budget to be Voted on in School District Vote

May 1st, 2016 · No Comments

Voting for two open seats on the school board, adoption of the annual budget and multiple resolutions will take place on Tuesday, May 17th between 12:00 noon and 9:00 pm in the large group instruction room at the Whitehall high school on Buckley road.

This year there are multiple resolutions on the ballot also:

1.) Voters will be asked to keep the school board at its current 9 members or shrink the number to 7.
2.) Voters will also be asked whether the term of the members should be 5 years or be shortened to 3 years.
3.) Voters will be asked to approve the purchase of two 65-passenger school buses, not to exceed the cost of $230,000.
4.) Residents will also vote an the annual school budget.

Once again there are numerous candidates running for the two available seats. I will be covering this election and the ballot propositions during the next few weeks, so please stop back for more updates.
