For the second time in two years, Dodge
City voters have rejected a school bond issue.
Residents on Tuesday
voted down a $35 million school bond issue to fund the construction
of a new middle school. Last year, voters turned down a $60 million
school bond issue.
School superintendent ALan Cunningham says school officials will
have to come up with a new plan for handling increasing enrollment
in the district.
Opponents said the school board needs to pay off current debts
before seeking more money from taxpayers.
