ED Voters Reject School Bond Issue

A bond referendum that would have added an elementary school addition to the high school in East Dubuque has been rejected again by voters. On Tuesday nearly 790 voters cast no ballots for the 10.5 million dollars bond issue. In addition to the elementary school add on, if approved the referendum would have also paid for a number of renovations and additions to the high school. Last year voters rejected a 12 million dollar bond issued for the same project. The total cost of the project is around 16 million, and if approved the district would have paid for the remaining cost by using reserve funds and grants.
