HOUSTON, Miss. (WTVA) — Voters rejected a proposed $9.25 million bond issue aimed at paying for repairs at Houston's four schools and the district's career and technology center.
Unofficial results from Tuesday's vote showed 54 percent were against the proposal and 46 percent were for it.
District Superintendent Tony Cook said the middle school would have been the top priority if the school system was allowed to borrow the money for repairs.
He said prior to the vote the school needed a new roof and all five facilities had leaking roofs.
