Ada, MN -- The Ada-Borup School District was successful in its first attempt at passing a $9 million dollar building referendum on Tuesday night, albeit by a slim margin. The referendum passed by just 12 votes. Ada-Borup Superintendent Aaron Cook had a feeling it might be close, but says the board and administration put in a lot of work to make sure it was successful.

The overall cost of the project is actually just shy of $10 million, with a school safety grant and district contributions tallying about a million dollars. Included in the project is a renovated preschool area, multipurpose gymnasium addition, elementary classroom addition, new Elementary and High School office area, as well as other safety and security items.
