Voters okay $25M bond issue

By a narrow margin, voters in USD 466 gave their go-ahead to a $25 million bond issue during Tuesday’s election.

The largest bond issue in Scott County history - topping the $24 million issued for construction of the new Scott County Hospital in 2008 - was approved on a 747-714 vote, according to unofficial returns.

There are another 16 provisional ballots to be reviewed by county commissioners, but those won’t alter the election’s outcome.

Of 3,231 registered voters in the district, 1,480 cast ballots - a turnout of 46 percent.
