FRHSD Referendum

Election Day: Tuesday, November 2, 2021

The Freehold Regional High School District (FRHSD) has critical, urgent infrastructure needs, including roofing and paving projects, that must be addressed. The District is seeking voter approval on Tuesday, November 2, 2021, on a referendum to issue bonds to complete this work.

Dr. Sampson's introduction to the upcoming Referendum

The District is addressing the most critical infrastructure areas for inclusion in this referendum. Urgent roofing replacements and paving work at each high school will be completed. The bonds will be for $14.46 million.

If voters approve the referendum, the State of New Jersey will pick up 40% of the bonds' cost, meaning the work will cost FRHSD $8.68 million instead of the full $14.46 million.

If the referendum is approved, the impact on the FRHSD portion of a resident's property tax bill is an estimated increase of less than ½ of 1%.

The District has launched a website dedicated to the upcoming referendum. There you will find additional information including video walk-throughs of the proposed projects with the architect.
