Shelby School District Bond Measure (August 2010)
This measure was approved
- YES 2,176 (53.02%)
- NO 1,928 (46.98%)
This measure tried again to pass a bond that failed in May. The bond will be in the amount of $28 million and would be used to help with construction projects in the district. Community members had funded this election, a check was given to the county board of education to hold this special election. The plan will be to move the current middle school from its location, on a flood plain, in order to avoid future flooding that could occur. Cracks and mildew plauge the school now and school officials saw this as the only way to ensure a safe environment for students. The current levy maintains the buildings but is not enough to help with new construction.
