CASSELTON, N.D. (AP) — Voters in the Central Cass School District will go back to the polls later this month to decide the fate of a proposed $4.8 million addition to the K-12 school in southeastern North Dakota.

The election is scheduled Sept. 29. A similar measure was defeated last April. It fell just short of the 60 percent supermajority needed to pass.

Superintendent Mark Weston says that measure would have created a permanent tax-supported building fund, while the current one calls for approval of the project with bonds to be paid off over 20 years. The owners of a $100,000 home would pay an additional $90 a year in property taxes.

The proposed addition would add six classrooms, an auditorium, a gym, and more space for music practice, locker rooms and storage.
