Pasco bond information meeting planned tonight

By the Tri-City HeraldOctober 25, 2012 

The Pasco School District will present information on a bond of more than $46 million at 6:30 p.m. today at the district administration office at 1215 W. Lewis St.

The bond, scheduled for a February ballot, would pay for two new elementary schools, an early learning center and other facility improvements throughout the district if approved by voters. It would cost property taxpayers 34 cents per $1,000 in assessed property value, or $34 a year for a $100,000 home.

District officials have said the bond is needed to keep up with current enrollment and avoid other measures, such as double-shifting or a multi-track school year.
