Eureka USD 389 To Seek Another Bond Election
After reviewing community input, and modifying the proposed layout, the Eureka USD 389 Board of Education approved to seek another bond election, at a special meeting held on Thursday, May 16. If approved by the state in June, district voters will have the opportunity to vote on two propositions regarding the school bond during the November 5 general election.
The layout is similar to the recent bond proposal that was voted on in March, but in an effort to decrease cost, the board approved a proposal that decreased square footage. The board also approved to move forward with two propositions appearing on the ballot.
Proposition 1, or ballot question 1, includes a gymnasium, two football locker rooms, two single-user rest rooms, gym storage, and a community center. The total project cost for proposition 1 would be $4,896,147.
Proposition 2, or ballot question 2, is contingent on proposition one passing and includes adding high school administration to the addition. The total project cost for both propositions would be $5,792,384. *Both propositions must pass in order for the district to move forward with both propositions. If proposition one passes and proposition two fails, the board would be able to move forward with proposition one only. Proposition two cannot pass, even if approved, unless proposition one is approved as well.*
