Salem County voters approve 2 school referendums, reject one

By Don E. Woods | South Jersey Times

"As Salem County residents visited the voting booths Tuesday for the election, many were also faced with questions specific to their towns. All three of the referendum questions involved local school districts.

Design for Woodstown-Pilesgrove was provided by Garrison Architects of Bellmawr.


Woodstown-Pilesgrove Referendum

The need for a new roof at Woodstown High School — among other improvements — led to an $11.9 million referendum for the Woodstown-Pilesgrove Regional School District. After the polls closed Tuesday, 1,606 voted for and 1,033 voted against the referendum. The project includes the replacement of the Woodstown High School roof, upgrades to the heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, and the installation of 200 windows and 20 doors. The project totals $19.8 million — with the state paying $7.9 million and the district paying $11.9 million.

Residents of the Penns Grove-Carneys Point Regional School District voted for a referendum approving approximately $6 million in bonds.

A referendum that would increase taxes for the Pittsgrove Township School District by a cent was not approved by residents.
