School building referendum passes by wide margin
It required a 60 percent majority to pass, but received quite a bit more.
On Tuesday, the West Fargo School District successfully got the public's consent for an $82.5 million building bond referendum. It was the third time the district had tried to pass a bond referendum in as many years.
But what failed to meet the grade in past elections was accepted by flying colors this go-round. By final tally, 70 percent of more than 7,400 votes cast favored the proposed plan.
