No changes were found Monday in the recount of Menahga School District ballots, the $4.35 million building referendum failing by a three-vote margin.


The recount found 695 no votes cast, 692 yes votes.

A recount was requested by Mel Lockhart, who submitted a petition with 29 names, per statutory requirement.

The district qualified for 0 percent interest financing through federal stimulus funds but the opportunity expires in September, superintendent Mary Klamm said.
