Voters very handily approved a 96 million dollar school bond for Bend LaPine schools that will help fund a new elementary and middle school.

 

They also approved by a 3 to 1 margin, a five year levy to fund the county's 9-1-1 disptach center.

 

911 Director Rob Poirier is grateful.

 

"Well, obviously extremely happy.  I was happy it passed, but I was really pleased by the margin in which it passed -- very grateful voters have confidence in our 911 center and what we do for the community."

 

The new rate approved is actually three cents less per one thousand dollars of assessed property value than we're currently paying.

 

Poirier says the long term plan is to have a permanent tax levy to support 9-1-1, but that won't be addressed until   the temporary levy expires five years from now.
