Lake City School Patrons Face Bond

Some of the oldest, most outdated schools in Coeur d’Alene will be renovated over the next three years if voters in the Coeur d’Alene School District approve a $32.7 million bond measure this month. It’s one of three school measures on the Aug. 28 ballot in Kootenai County. Lakeland Joint School District is seeking voter approval of a five-year maintenance levy, and Kootenai Joint School District is proposing a $2 million bond measure to upgrade its wastewater system. The Coeur d’Alene district proposes major renovations of Borah, Bryan, Sorensen and Winton elementary schools and Canfield Middle School. More than $25 million would be spent modernizing these schools, including adding gymnasiums, removing portable classrooms and upgrading heating and ventilation systems/Scott Maben, SR. More here.

DFO: For the first time I'm in a quandary re: a Coeur d'Alene School Board bond or levy. I've never voted against one. However, I have little faith in the Hard Right bent of the current board including its appointees.

Question: What would you do if you were in my shoes?
