Brown County voters shoot down school bond

BROWN COUNTY, Il (WGEM) — Voters in Brown County, Illinois, shot down a $25 million bond to build and equip new elementary and high school buildings.

District officials said that the bond would have allowed them to build and equip larger elementary and high school buildings and provided the funds to demolish the current high school building, except for the auditorium.

District officials say some of the upgrades they wanted to do are required by the state and they will have to find another way to pay for those upgrades.
