PULASKI - The results will stand, at least for now, for the Pulaski School District referendum.
However, a recount on one of the four questions will happen.
Monday afternoon, the board of canvassers took an hour and a half to total all the votes, including 11 absentee ballots.
Despite some minor changes, Question Two remains the only one moving forward.
It passed by only eight votes. Yes: 3,052, No: 3,044. The original report indicated it passed by only seven votes.
This means taxpayers approved spending $4.3 million on building maintenance and security upgrades.
It comes out to about $9 a year for property valued at $100,000.
"With 6,000 votes cast it seems appropriate, with only a difference of eight, that it would be in our best interest as voters to take a second look," explained voter Jerry Miller.
It took only minutes for Miller to request a recount.
He's behind the "It's Ok to vote no on the Pulaski School Referendum" movement.
"It comes down to a lack of understanding. I don't think many of the taxpayers understand how the budgets that are currently in place are being allocated and I don't think they're being allocated in the best interest of the populous," Miller said.
Three other questions failed to pass. One was for technology and infrastructure improvements.
Another would have spent more than $9 million for additions and remodeling to existing schools.
And the fourth would have spent $7.9 million for a new activity center, which would have included a pool.
"If this passes, we'll be able to rehabilitate and repair our buildings," explained Pulaski Superintendent Mel Lightner.
Lightner says he supports a recount, since it's so close. He says while the one referendum will help, it doesn't address the other issues.
"Because we don't know how much money we'll get from the state, we'll probably have to budget based on a worst case scenario and that may mean some layoffs or program cuts in our district, but it's the same everywhere else," Lightner said.
District officials plan to begin the recount on Thursday, with hopes to have results by the end of the week.
It's unclear how much it could cost taxpayers.
