Gym concerns may have affected Verndale vote
Concerns regarding the addition of another gymnasium to the Verndale School may have been the main reason for the defeat of a $3.995 million building bond proposal Tuesday, in a 300-252 vote by District 818 residents.
Voters in the city of Verndale favored the measure 84-74, but it was defeated in six of seven Wadena County townships. Landowners and commercial businesses in the district were being asked to shoulder a larger portion of new taxes that would come with the project.
