Strasburg voters narrowly defeat school projectSTRASBURG, N.D. — Residents of Strasburg have narrowly rejected a proposal to renovate part of the school in the south central North Dakota town.
The $2.9 million measure failed on Tuesday by 18 votes.
The school board had wanted to renovate the 1935 portion of the K-12 school that currently houses the gym, kitchen, dining hall and stage. The project would have raised property taxes by about $21 per year on a home valued at $50,000.
The school has about 150 students. Strasburg is about 70 miles south of Bismarck.
