Colman & Egan voters to decide on $6.3 million school bond on Tuesday

COLMAN/EGAN, S.D.(KELO)- Voters in the Colman/Egan School District go to the polls next week to consider a 6.3-million dollar bond issue.

Superintendent Scott Hemmer says the school is in the midst of a five-year growth trend, so extra classroom space is needed.

If it’s approved, the school will also add a weight room and remodel some existing space to make room for Career and Technical education.

Superintendent Scott Hemmer says officials have been working on plans for over a year.

They scaled back the original proposal as voters made their preferences known.

The project would increase property taxes by about 25-dollars per month for the owner of a 200-thousand dollar home.
