FULTON COUNTY – On Tuesday, school districts in Northville and Mayfield voted on whether to merge their schools.

While that referendum has been rejected by voters in Northville by a vote of 670 to 309, it was passed by voters in Mayfield.

The vote there was 386 to 273.

So what happens now?

If Northville residents petition the State Department of Education for another vote, it could take place in a year and a day.

Mayfield wouldn't have to vote again.
