(Update)

A referendum to raise the property tax portion necessary to overhaul the currently-vacant Milford Middle School has been approved by voters. About 67-percent were in favor and 33-percent were opposed.

The project would cost about $57-million, with the majority paid for by state funding. The tax increase would be spread out over several years.

The Milford School District hopes to transform the middle school building to relieve current overcrowding.

Milford voters are deciding the future of a proposed renovation of Milford Middle School.

The school district still owns the facility, but it’s been closed for years. The referendum seeks voter approval to raise property taxes to cover part of the costs of a project that’s estimated at $57-million.

Most of the funding would come from the state. The growing district hopes to create space for fifth- and sixth-grade classes.

Voting takes place Wednesday between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. at several schools in the district and at Morris Early Childhood Center.
