Palmyra, Delran voters accept school bonds

Two Burlington County school districts were among the 12 statewide that got voters' approval for capital-improvement referendums Tuesday.

Voters in Palmyra approved a $9.9 million proposal to fund additions to the high school, renovations to two elementary schools, and the installation of solar panels. The vote was 275-262.

In Delran, voters approved by 1,171-1,131 a $25.9 million bond to fund additions and renovations to the middle and high schools and renovations to other schools.

Lumberton, however, was one of eight districts around the state that saw its referendum defeated. It was voted down 484-232. The district wanted $15 million to renovate its middle school and three elementary schools and to install solar panels.
