Two major school renovation projects that had failed in the past finally got the green light from voters during Tuesday's Town Meeting.
Voters in Newmarket approved a $39 million renovation of Newmarket Junior/Senior High School and Newmarket Elementary School. Seacoast Online reports this was the fourth version of a school renovation project to go before voters in the last 11 years.
Voters Tuesday overwhelmingly passed the project, with 74 percent voting in favor.
Also, voters in Hampton approved a $25.9 million bond to pay for the addition/renovation of Hampton Academy. The project failed last year.
In Durham, voters approved spending $2 million to renovate the town's police department.
Not everyone was in a spending mood, however.
In Raymond, voters rejected two infrastructure projects. One was a $9.4 million addition and renovation to Lamprey River Elementary School, and the other was a new, $6.8 million police station.
Hampton voters approved a $25.9 million addition/renovation of Hampton Academy at Tuesday's Town Meeting.
