Voters in two northern Addison County towns want their schools to stay open. But will they? And if so what will it cost? Note: BFP sourced the online Addison Independent for some information in this story.
"The Nov. 5 vote on a proposal to close Addison Central School and Ferrisburgh Central School had these results…….:
Addison: 123 in favor of closure; 373 opposed
Ferrisburgh: 160 in favor of closure; 884 opposed
