The Toledo School bond is currently failing with Superintendent Chris Rust stating, "The election won't be certified until Feb. 24, but I don't anticipate enough of a change to hit the 60 percent mark this time. I'm working to gather our community members together soon to look at the results and hear how to adjust in order to get the community's desires related to our facilities. I'm especially interested in hearing from voters who didn't vote or who couldn't support the measure, so that their voices are reflected in a future measure."
The numbers at the time of publication were 55 percent in favor of the bond measure and 44 percent opposed, nowhere near the 60 percent needed for the bond to pass.
Some community members will be hosting a session on tax exemptions for seniors to discuss the effects on the senior population, and organizers hope that many of the seniors will attend and spread the news of the tax exemptions for seniors.
Toledo High School was set to receive a majority of the funds. The high school has many repairs that are needed, from walls that are rotten to drinking fountains that are in need of repair. The school is also in need of a major electrical upgrade as many rooms have wires dangling from the ceilings.
