Bond report: Dist. 81 yes; “police and pets” no

Spokane School District officials can probably rest easy tonight. Their $288 million bond issue has a comfortable lead, and seems headed for passage.

News for the City of Spokane's Police Department and animal control plans is not so good. The $18.5 million "Police and Pets" bond issue was thumped. Hard.

The above map is a look at the city bond issue as of Tueday night's count.-


It shows that the proposal had very few places (green) where it received the necessary 60 percent approval. 

It had majority support, although not the 60 percent super-majority support, in many parts of the city, represented in pink.

But it would seem the campaign just couldn't make the sale to enough of voters all over town.

Map of the school bond issue coming soon.
