Voters in New Castle will meet Tuesday night to reconsider last week’s vote to defeat a $1 million bond for upgrades and renovations to the town’s elementary school.

Seacoast Online reports the reconsideration meeting will be held at the New Castle Recreation Center at 7.

At last week’s school district, voters defeated the bond question, which needed a two-thirds majority.

However, voters then agreed to reconsider the question after complaints the discussion had been cut off.

The 10-year bond would include upgrades to the school’s air ventilation and fire protection systems, windows and lighting.

Renovations to the bathrooms and the school’s kitchen are also included in the project.
