A $12.5 million referendum for the Wrenshall School District did not pass Tuesday.
The Duluth News Tribune reports over 70 percent of voters were against it.
According to the district, the money would've been used for renovations and an expansion - a solution to overcrowding. Homeowners would've had to pay $270 per year on a home valued at $150,000 for 20 years.
Several who were opposed raised concerns that this would hurt tax payers and suggested class sizes be capped.
