Voters in the Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted Public School District voted down requests for building improvements Thursday.
Two questions were on the ballot asking voters to approve two projects for improvement of school facilities at a total cost just over $26.6-million.
Unofficial results show Question 1 failed with 897 voting no and 496 voting yes.
Question 2 failed with 908 voting no and 483 voting yes. Question 1 asked voters to authorize the district to issue about $19.8-million in general obligation bonds for construction of a new middle school and partial demolition and repair to the existing middle school.
Had question 1 been approved, voters were asked if they would authorize the district to issue just over $5.8-million in general obligation bonds for renovation and additions to Humphrey Elementary and Winsted Elementary Schools.
