Crook County School Bond Approved


More than half the funds will go toward a new elementary school.

 

Tax rates will not go up for residents since another bond is expiring.

 

Prineville Mayor Bette Roppe says the results were a little close for comfort.

 

"We had a budget meeting that night and I looked at the results and we were ahead by 140 votes, so I was kind of sweating it.  But a four percent win means we're getting a great new elementary school.  We got that accomplisehd, so we're very very happy."

 

Crook County is going to repalce Crooked River Elementary and Ochoco Elementary with a new elementary school.  These schools were built in the 1930's and 1940's.

 

The remaining funds will be used to upgrade existing district facilities.
