FAIRFAX, Vt. (WCAX) - Local residents can learn more about a $36.5 million school bond at BFA-Fairfax ahead of next Tuesday’s re-vote.

Building tours will take place Thursday at 5 p.m. with a public hearing to follow at around 6 p.m.

The bond narrowly passed in November by just 33 votes, but a handful of residents created a petition for a revote, saying they didn’t know they had to request a special ballot.

School officials say the bond would pay for new classrooms, office space, and a fire sprinkler system. The estimated annual tax impact for the next fiscal year could range from $98 to $176 depending on a home’s values. That tax impact will likely be greater in the fiscal year 2025.

Residents can vote in person at the Middle School gym on Tuesday, January 10th, or by mail.

Absentee ballots must be turned in no later than Friday at 4 p.m.
