Oct 24, 2013

The Tea Area School Board is putting a bond on a local election ballot. Voters will decide the multi-million dollar issue before the New Year.  This is the second attempt at a similar bond to improve facilities within the Tea Area School District.

Voters defeated bond issue in September that would have built new facilities.  This election was defeated by a very small margin of only 31 votes. Tea Area School Board President John Herr says a few changes were made between the defeated proposal and the newly proposed one.
