Mead School District Hopes Voters Back $25 Million Bond

Polls are open today from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. for Mead School District voters.

District officials are hoping voters see things their way and pass a $25 million bond, most of which will go toward massive upgrades of the 25-year-old Mead High School. The heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems need replacing and classroom space should be remodeled to better suit curriculum, officials say.

Five years ago, voters approved a $28.5 million bond to build Mt. Spokane High School; some of that money was saved for Mead.

The bond would result in a tax increase of about 61 cents per $1,000 assessed valuation, or $61 on a $100,000 home.

Voters also will consider the district’s regular maintenance and operations levy at $7.7 million for 1999 and $8.1 million for 2000.
