It appears voters in Finley have approved a $10 million dollar bond that will provide some much needed refurbishments and upgrades (the first in 17 years) but Pasco's bond to build new schools appears to have failed.

We kind of chided Finley School District voters last week, because district officials said they didn't have the minimum of 811 votes to even certify their bond election. At least 40% of voters in a school district must cast a ballot. As of Tuesday, some 833 Finley residents were passing the bond at just over the 60% super majority required.

However, Pasco shows only about 54% percent of voters were in favor of a plan that would have spent just over $69 million to build two new elementary schools, four new classrooms at Marie Curie STEM Elementary, and would have built a new Stevens Middle School. It would have also added other improvements.

Richland was passing it's bond with about 61 percent, their $99 million dollar project would replace Tapteal and and Badger Mountain Elementary schools, and build two others. It would also fund a slew of improvements, including many to Fran Rish Stadium.

Finley voters appeared to be approving the money to install a new security system at the elementary, middle and Riverview High School, refurbish the football stadium and provide wheelchair access, upgrade the career technical buildings and programs, and other athletic facilities including the weight room.

Zillah and Grandview were also passing their bonds, and Prosser's was passing by a whopping 73 percent yes vote, as of Tuesday.
