Huron voters to decide fate of $22M bond project

Posted: Updated:

HURON, S.D. (AP) - Huron voters are set to decide the fate of a $22 million bond project meant to build additions to three of the city's elementary schools.

The project would need 60 percent of the vote come Election Day on April 9 to move forward. The goal is to expand the schools to keep pace with population growth.

Officials with KIDS First, the committee behind the bond project, say that enrollment is up 57 percent from 10 years ago and is expected to climb another 37 percent by 2017.

KIDS First chairman Garret Bischoff says some of the elementary schools have classes with as many as 29 students. He says it would cost half as much to renovate the existing buildings compared with building new facilities.
