Board votes to dismiss appeal of recall petition certification

The Woodford County Board of Education voted on Monday to dismiss its appeal of the county clerk’s certification of a recall petition, which opposed a proposed 5.5 cent property tax to build a new high school. The decision to dismiss its appeal (because of a potential delay in building a new high school and the expense of litigation) came one week after the school board’s decision to move forward with the appeal.

After the dismissal of its appeal this week, the board can then move forward with scheduling a special election on the tax issue. That could come as early as next Monday, April 23 at its regular meeting, schools Superintendent Scott Hawkins said after the meeting.

For more details about the school board’s action and its options moving forward, read Thursday’s Woodford Sun.
