The Middletown Township Board of Education will hold two public forums on the $32 million referendum set to go before voters next month.
The first hearing will be held Tuesday at 8 p.m. during the board's meeting at Middletown High School North. A second hearing will be held on Thursday, March 6 at 7 p.m. at Bayshore Middle School.
The $32 million project would upgrade heating systems at the high schools and middle schools, as well as cover roof replacements for the high schools, middle schools and Bayview, Fairview, Leonardo, Lincroft, Middletown Village, Navesink, New Monmouth, Nut Swamp, Ocean Avenue and River Plaza elementary schools.
State funding would account for $12.9 million of the project, with the local share to be covered by $19.3 million in bonds. The district would not receive the state funding should the referendum not pass.
The special school district election on the referendum will be held Tuesday, March 11 from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
