P.L. School Bond Passes

The second time was the charm for the $33-million Pequot Lakes School District bond referendum.

Voters approved the question Tuesday, 1352 yes, 910 no. 

There were two polling locations.  At the Pequot Lakes High School the vote was 1031 yes, 560 no.  At Crosslake City Hall the vote was 236 yes, 184 no.  Absentee ballots broke 85 yes, 166 no.

The same referendum failed last spring by about 250 votes. 

The school district had requested the bond because Eagle View Elementary School in Breezy Point had become over-crowded.  The school was built seven years ago to house 28 sections, however the school now has 32 classes.

The funds generated from the bond may not be used for staff salary.

The school board must still canvass the election results before they become official.
