SHARON Voters on Tuesday night soundly passed a $5.98 million referendum for improvements at Sharon Community School.
The referendum passed 224-143, Administrator Steve Huebbe said.
“The school board as guardians of the district need to follow through with this directive and continue plans to maintain the school,” Huebbe said.
The school board in February decided to ask voters for permission to take out a loan for security and energy efficiency upgrades at the school.
Plans include repairs to the school’s roof and exterior, reconfiguring the entrance and replacing the original wood floors in the portion of the school that was built in 1935.
Workers will build handicapped accessible bathrooms and making other accessibility improvements.
