A second referendum in Monticello failed Tuesday night, this time the question proposed funds for a new high school facility.
Superintendent Dr. Vic Zimmerman explains while the decision from the community is disappointing, he feels the community still supports the school system.
The voter turnout was much bigger for this vote compared to the last referendum. Dr. Zimmerman feels there was not much more that could have been done to inform the public.
Dr. Zimmerman says the next board meeting for the Monticello Board of Education is March 30 and he doesn't anticipate much discussion on a facilities plan moving forward.
He says because of this being in the spotlight for the last four years, he anticipates a time of rest from the topic.
