Rothsay, MN (WDAY TV) - It took two votes and a revamped plan. Rothsay is getting a new school.

The $19.4 million project passed 348 yes votes to 315 against. Residents voted down a $24 million project by 12 votes in December.

The new plan cuts out a new fire hall, daycare center and major cutbacks to landscaping and furniture. The district also increased its contribution.

The current school is overcrowded and has sections more than a century old.
