Previously this article stated that four of the six Island towns have to approve the bond measure for it to pass. The vote has to be unanimous.

Oak Bluffs voters will be asked to vote on a request to help fund the construction of a new $3.9 million administration building for the Martha’s Vineyard public schools, at a special town meeting that begins at 7 pm at the Oak Bluffs School Thursday, April 30.

Town payment on the 20-year bond used to finance the project would be $98,812 in 2017, and would decline steadily to $60,159 in 2037.

The article was not on the annual town meeting warrant because of an administrative disconnect between the school administration office and town hall. West Tisbury and Tisbury turned down the request.
