Jeff Co North USD 339 bond issue defeated

(KNZA)--Voters in the Jefferson County North School District in a special election Tuesday turned down a $5.5 million bond issue for facility improvements.

According to the school district, unofficial results showed the bond issue being defeated by a 19-vote margin, with 144 votes cast in favor of the proposal to 163 against.

School district officials say they will evaluate and create a new plan in the future.

The bond issue would have funded a variety of improvements, ranging from school safety to HVAC and roof repairs, along with additional classroom space—including a Vo-Ag classroom.

The proposal would have required a 6.5 mill levy increase over a 30-year period to pay for the bonds and interest.
