Notus will try another bond issue

On Aug. 26, 63 percent of Notus voters said yes to replacing an aging grade school — but that fell short of the required two-thirds supermajority.

The district has posted a conceptual plan and PowerPoint presentation on its website.

The elementary school in question was opened in 1926.
