Budgets OKed; Voters Save Lake Clear School

Listen to this story
The vast majority of school budgets passed in the North Country yesterday. Budgets were defeated in Gouverneur, Indian Lake, Fort Edward, and Hadley-Luzerne Central School. Most spending propositions passed too. But voters in Massena said no to a $30 million dollar capital project to improve playing fields and add space to the school buildings. In Glens Falls a 2.5 million dollar proposal to install synthetic turf at the high school football field was narrowly defeated.
