$99 Million Dollar Bond Coming to Voters in Pasco in November
Largely because the city is struggling to keep up with it's rapidly growing population and growing school numbers, the Pasco School District will ask voters to approve a bond in November.
Thursday, the district announced they will seek to pass a $99 million dollar bond, which will provide for the following projects:
- Replace Stevens Middle School
- Build Elementary school #16 (as yet unnamed until-if bond passes)
- Build Elementary school #17
- Build Middle School #4
- Transportation facilities and bus maintenance bays
- School security upgrades
- replacing a number of school building roofs
Other projects would be paid by the $99.5 million dollar bond. Pasco tried to pass a similar levy in February of this year, but it was defeated as it reached only a 54% approval instead of the two-thirds super majority. For more details on the bond, click here.
