(HURON COUNTY) -- There was low voter turnout during three special elections in Huron County Tuesday. The bond proposal sought by the Owendale-Gagetown Area School District was turned down with 184 no votes to 175 yes. The district was seeking to increase its debt by $2.99 million through general obligation bonds for improvements at the school. A similar bond proposal was turned down by voters in May 2012 when the district was asking for a $3.08 million bond proposal, which would have levied 3.3-mills. That vote went down by just 11 votes.
The Unionville-Sebewaing School District's $5.85 million bond proposal for improvements and technology updates passed Tuesday with 317 yes votes to 171 no votes. The district will levy the current 7-mills over 14-years.
The police tax levy in the Village of Gagetown passed with 50 yes votes to 36 no. The renewed property tax levy of 3.5-mills over 10-years will continue to fund police protection within the village.
