Liberty Eylau 2016 School Bond Passes


Results from the 2016 Liberty Eylau School Bond election are in and both propositions have passed. Voters have made the decision to completely reconstruct the Primary Campus, and close down the old C.K. Bender Campus.

The numbers:

Proposition 1 — 484 For 243 Against
Proposition 2 — 461 For 259 Against

Proposition 1 is a 19.9 million dollar project that will convert the L.E. Pre-K to grade 1 campus on Hwy. 59 into the Liberty Eylau Primary 1 – 4 Campus and see the closing of the old C,K. Bender Elementary School on Buchanan Road for a savings estimated at $430,000 per year.

Proposition 2 would be a project that would total $985,000 and mean some much needed improvements to Harris Field at the High School Campus. Including new turf for the football field, resurfacing of the track, and improvements to the concession area and restrooms.

After more than 30 years with radio and TV stations, I decided to do my own thing by blogging. It affords me the ability to stay super involved in the community, but still, have plenty of time with my 3 new granddaughters and other local projects.
