Princeton School District voters pass building maintenance referendum

By Marie Rohde

Voters gave the Princeton School District a split decision on a pair of referendum questions Tuesday.

A referendum asking for $50,000 a year for each of the next three years to replace windows, fix the roof and replace computers passed by a 319-256 margin.

“We’ve been putting off maintenance-related issues for several years,” Jeff McCartney, the district administrator, said a day before voters headed to the polls. “We’ve had listening sessions and they’ve been pretty quiet.”

A second referendum question asking that the district be allowed to exceed its levy limits by $300,000 a year for each of the next three years was voted down by a 314-259 tally.

The questions were placed on the primary ballot because the contract with the teacher union expires in March, McCartney said.
