2. USD 329 bond issue fails
On November 3, Wabaunsee County voters rejected the USD 329 bond. The bond would have been used to renovate district buildings, and build a PreK-6 building in Paxico and a 7-12 building in Alma. Unfortunately the bond failed by about 14% of the vote. The school board is now looking for ways to cut costs or try to pass a new bond. The effects of this vote will be realized in the years to come. To put it frankly, our buildings are falling apart and are becoming increasingly difficult to maintain. Will the citizens of this district agree on a solution, or will things continue to get more dire?
