L.I. Residents Vote Down Plan To Close Schools

MINEOLA, N.Y. (CBS 2) — Voters in one Long Island town have overwhelmingly rejected a plan to shut down several elementary schools.

The bond proposal would have closed three schools in the Mineola district:  Meadow Drive in Albertson, Hampton Street in Mineola, and Cross Street in Williston Park.

The District blamed the proposal on declining enrollment and higher costs.

The emotional issues involved sent voters to the polls in droves. They voted against it by a nearly five to one majority.

    They voted it down so let Obama pay!

  • So jou

    But its their money, Dan Duh, so take your name calling and opinions elsewhere!

  • DanTe

    And now the taxes goes up!

    Must be a bunch of twits living in Mineola: 5 square miles with 5 schools.
