HAMILTON TOWNSHIP — Voters on Tuesday, Oct. 2, approved a township school-construction referendum, according to unofficial results.

The approval was by a solid margin, with 848 votes for the project and 525 against.

In total, 14 New Jersey school districts held special elections this fall, totaling $305,361,570 in construction projects.

Hamilton’s referendum sought a $22 million bond for an addition at the Hess Educational Complex and renovations, alterations and improvements at Shaner Memorial Elementary School and Davies Middle School, including all fixtures, furnishings and equipment.

The state will pay for about $10 million of the project.
