The aftermath of the levy failure in the Woodridge Local School District will consist of cuts and pay freezes at the top.
The Woodridge School Board is faced with decisions for where to make cost-cutting measures.
At a special meeting on Friday, Superintendent Walter Davis detailed what he and the district treasurer will do on their ends-- they've agreed to take a pay freeze and contribute more to their healthcare premium expenses.
FallsNewsPress.com reports Davis told the board he'll soon recommend the elimination of 27 jobs.

The levy lost Tuesday by 249 votes.
