There was very low voter turnout on Saturday in Sherman for the budget vote, residents were evenly divided on the question of the school budget, so there needs to be a recount. The $5 million municipal plan received 258 votes in favor, with 38 opposed. But 147 Sherman residents voted in favor of and opposed to the $9.38 million school budget. The combined proposed budget would have included a slight spending increase, but the mill rate would have gone down through use of surplus funding to offset the spending. A date for the budget vote recount has not yet been set.
