Lincoln Consolidated Schools Bond Proposal To Appear On August 7th Ballot

Aug 1, 2018

Lincoln Consolidated Schools will ask voters next week to approve a bonding proposal to make improvements at the district.
 


The district wants the option to borrow up to $25 million for remodeling, buying new school buses, and updating its security system.  That includes purchasing classroom door locks that could easily be installed on building floors during lockdowns.

Superintendent Sean McNatt explains.

"Sometimes they're called the boot.  So they secure into the concrete making it nearly impossible for you to enter," said McNatt.

The district would levy 1.72 mills a year to pay off the bond.
