MARGARETTA

Some of Margaretta's busing could be canceled in the aftermath of two levy failures.

The mood was somber Wednesday night as Margaretta Schools Treasurer Jude Hammond presented his newly revised five-year forecast.

Even if the school district's two levies had passed May 8, it would still be bringing in less money than it spends. Now that both levies have failed, the school district has fallen more into the red and Hammond predicts rough times ahead.
