No recount for Hebron school referendum

Updated: June 23, 2013 6:33AM



VALPARAISO — No signatures were filed by the deadline Tuesday to ask for a recount on the Metropolitan School District of Boone Township from the Porter County Election Board.

The school’s resolution would have raised $530,000 for the general fund but failed to pass by four votes.

To qualify, the school needed to collect 109 signatures, 10 percent of the total number of people who voted in the election.

Republican voter registration director Sundae Schoon said no petition was filed.

Superintendent George Letz declined to comment.
