Voters in the Hampton-Dumont school district have turned back a bond issuefor a third time to replace a crumbling middle school building that couldnow be subject to fines and sanctions for safety violations. Fifty-eight-percent of the voters approved the eight-point-four (M) million dollar bond issue toreplace the building which is over 90 years old and has been cited for several safety and building code violations. Hampton-Dumont school board president Harry Birdsell was disappointed with the outcome.Birdsell says student safety is a big concern of the school district’s, and a new school is the only solution to the matter. Birdsell says the school district has not been fined as of yet for safety violations pending the outcome of the bond issue, but he says that may change now voters have voted it down.
