MONROE CITY, Mo (WGEM) — Tuesday voters in the Monroe City School District approved an $8.5 million bond to fund improvements across the school district.
The proposition was approved with 58 percent of the vote.
District officials say the bond will allow them to build new and larger classrooms in multiple departments, improve the traffic situation for pick up and drop off, replace the HVAC system in the Middle School and more.
Proposition 2 will raise the property tax $.43 for every $100 of value.
Superintendent Tracy Bottoms said this would be Phase 1 of a two-phase project. The 2nd phase would be a different no-increase bond issue that would be put to voters in 2024.
