Hopewell Valley put to vote a Hopewell Valley Regional School District (HVRSD) bond referendum to maintain and improve school facilities and, with 11 polling locations, results are in.
RESULTS are in as of 9pm on September 27, 2016:
By way of background, in 2014, HVRSD conducted a facilities needs assessment to determine the current state of the facilities and identified $60 million dollars of projects. Since 2014, the administration and the finance and facilities committee narrowed down the list of improvements that they considered immediately necessary, trimming it down to $35 million dollars. School districts are limited to a 2% tax levy cap to the annual budget therefore it is necessary for the District to seek public approval by vote for a bond referendum.
