The property tax referendum for the Woodbridge School District has been voted down.
WBOC reports that Superintendent Heath Chasanov said the measure was defeated by 753 to 642.
It was aimed at raising $950-thousand to fund the district’s operating costs.
The measure would have increased the average property owner’s annual tax bill by between $70 to $85.
Chasanov told the television station that there will be plans developed over the next few weeks on how to deal with the defeat.
But he added no decisions have been made.
