DUNDEE--Dundee residents rejected a proposed $15.9 million capital project on Feb. 8 for renovations and upgrades to the Dundee school building and bus garage. The vote was 242 "No" to 149 "Yes." Dundee Central School Superintendent Kelly Houck said she was surprised by the vote, stating she had been hopeful it would pass. In November 2016, a capital project of $29.5 million was rejected by voters. Houck stated, "It's a democratic process. The voters have spoken." Regarding the needed repairs and improvements to the school, Houck explained that the board will have to re-evaluate each project on a case-by-case basis. She stated, "We are going to take time to reflect and review and over the next several months that will continue to be a topic of conversation." She added according to state provisions no new propositions can now be presented to voters until at least one calendar year has passed.
