Madison School District Bond Measure (August 2010)
This measure was approved
- YES 2,256 (59.26%)
- NO 1,551 (40.74%)
This measure tried again to pass a bond that failed in May by just 41 votes. The bond will be in the amount of $24.7 million and will be used to help with construction of a new middle school in the district. Most of the money to fund the special election had been given to the district through community donations. Although typically Ohio school bonds do not often get approved in August, school officials were trying to remain optimistic.
If this measure had failed, the school officials stated that they would have had to close two elementary schools regardless because they would not have the funds to keep all the schools running in the district. The average homeowner will pay an additional $214 a year in property taxes in the district. Majority of those polled showed that they did support building one large school to encompass all the schools in the district but unsure if they would support the bond.
