Menahga School superintendent Mary Klamm said she's disappointed with Tuesday's election results.

About 56 percent of the voters said "no" to an $8.5 million referendum that would have expanded the school, to accommodate for a growing student population.


Out of 1,075 voters, the referendum failed 609 to 466.

Bob and Mary Hanninen were two of the majority who didn't support the levy, and said they didn't want their property taxes to increase.
