After Region 14's budget came before voters for the third time and , Chuck Cosgriff thanked the voters for their support.
But the work is not done.
"We have other issues to handle," said Cosgriff, after the polls closed at the Senior Community Center.
He said the board never really got answers about what the driving force was behind the "no" votes.
But, Cosgriff said the Region 14 Board of Education got the message from the community, that funding issues related to the vo-ag program at Nonnewaug High School need to be explored.
He said a meeting will likely be scheduled within the next week.
"The meeting will be to discuss funding issues, not the program itself," said Cosgriff, adding that there was some talk amongst the community about the board focusing on the latter.
The next regularly scheduled Region 14 Board of Education will take place at 7:30 p.m. Monday, July 16, in the Nonnewaug High School library.
