(FOX19) - The Fairfield City Schools bond issue will reappear on May ballots.
Out of more than 13,000 votes cast, the Issue 8 bond was shot down by just 59 votes on November 6.
The $2.62 million bond would have generated more than $60 million to partner with funds from the Ohio School Facilities Commission to replace Fairfield Central Elementary and the Freshman School. It would also build a brand new school. That money would bring the project to a total of nearly $80 million.
