Richland School Board Voted to Move Forward with Bond Proposal

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.-  The Richland School Board voted Tuesday night to move forward with their proposed $98-million bond proposal with no additional changes.

If the bond passes on the February ballot, it will keep Jefferson Elementary as a K-thru-5 school.

As well as fund remodeling for the Elementary school and three other schools downtown.

Richland School Board President Rick Jansons said the bond proposal is a great solution for remodeling and expanding the districts existing schools.

"We're doing this with the existing dollars on the bond with no increase on the bond amount and it's a good solution that works for everyone," Jansons said.

The formal vote for the bond legalities will be held on Nov. 27th.

If passed in February, taxpayers in the district will have to pay 34-cents per thousand on their assessed value.
