Napoleon voters approve bond issue for schools

Napoleon Area City School District voters approved a 37-year, $31.5 million bond issue to help build an elementary and add a junior high wing to the high school, but they turned down an income tax levy.

As part of the buildings plan presented to voters for the first time, the high school also will be renovated. The state school facilities commission will contribute $17.4 million to the $48.9 million project, which will replace two elementaries and a combined elementary/middle school.

The bond issue will cost the owner of a $100,000 house about $190 a year.

Voters in the Napoleon school district, however, rejected an income tax levy of 0.25 percent for five years on the ballot. That income tax levy would have raised $602,000 a year for operations.
