Three school bonds go to voters in eastern Idaho Tuesday.
The Bonneville School district is seeking a $42.7 million bond to finance the construction of a new elementary school, additions to Bonneville and Hillcrest High Schools and improvements to other schools in the district. If approved, it will cost an average taxpayer about $92 per year per $100,000 of taxable assessed value for the life of the bond.
The Sugar Salem school district, in Madison and Fremont Counties, is asking voters to approve a $17 million bond to finance a new junior high school and improve HVAC infrastructure in existing schools. If approved, it would cost an average taxpayer about $268.70 per $100,000 of taxable assessed value.
And, in the Oneida school district, voters are deciding a $17.3 million bond to finance construction of a new elementary school in Malad City and demolition of the existing elementary school and old high school. If approved, the bond would cost an average taxpayer about $238.69 per $100,000 of assessed value.
Each of the bonds will require a super majority of 66.7% to pass.
Polls will be open till 8 p.m.
