A 30 million dollar school building project had received overwhelming support at the polls.

Nearly 14-hundred votes were cast in the election: 1,201 were in favor, just 162 against. The vote needed a 60-percent majority to pass. It received 88 percent.

A second question, to increase the school's debt limit to 10 percent also passed.
