SCARBOROUGH — Voters by a margin of less than 100 votes rejected a proposed $47.1 million school budget on Tuesday, July 25.

According to unofficial results from Town Clerk Tody Justice, the vote was 1,930 to 1,847 in the second referendum on a budget for fiscal 2018.

On June 13, 57 percent of voters opposed a $47.4 million budget.

Residents will have a third chance to vote on the budget at an upcoming election that has yet to be scheduled.
