Recount planned Wednesday in Tea bond vote

Posted: Updated:

The Tea school bond issue election will be officially decided during a recount next week.

A group will meet at 3 p.m. Wednesday to re-examine the ballots, Kathy Cleveland, the district’s business manager, said.

Sixty percent of voters needed to support the May 13 bond vote, but it failed with just 59.88 percent supporting. The bond would pay for 14 new classrooms for the elementary school and a performing arts center at the high school.

This is the third time the bond issue has failed. Residents voted in September and December.
