Both measures were also defeated in Holmes County

  • YES 97 (36.6%)
  • NO 168 (63.4%)Defeatedd[2]

The bond measure sought to create a bond which would increase local property taxes by $.65 per $100 of assessed property value and would be used to help construct new classrooms and facilities in the district.[3] The bond would have been in the amount of $24.7 million and would have added an average of $247 a year in property tax increases for local residents. School officials stated that the needs of the school were great and renovations had not been attempted since the schools opening in the 1960s. Opponents had come out, not against the schools but said that adding more taxes to already tight budgets would not be good for residents.[4]

The levy measure sought to increase local property taxes by $.15 per $100 of assessed value in order to help pay for improvements to school facilities.[3]
