Manchester Community Schools Bond Issue Passes By One Vote

Manchester Community Schools

Tax renewal for Manchester Community Schools passes by wide margin 

By the narrowest of margins, voters in the Manchester Community Schools  District passed a bond request. With nearly 15-hundred ballots cast, the measure passed by one vote, 748-747. 

The 3.6 million dollar sale of bonds will allow for facilities improvements, remodeling and refurnishing, new school busses and improved technology and security in the schools. 

It is unknown whether a recount will be requested. 

The other question before voters in the district passed much more easily. voters were asked to renew a 20-year, 18-mill tax for district operations and 68-percent of voters agreed to do so.
