Voters To Decide On Tallmadge School Bond Issues

Written by

The Tallmadge City School District is hoping voters say YES on two bond issues on the upcoming ballot to make changes to its buildings and athletic facilities.

Issue 43 is a 3.86 mill bond issue that would consolidate the district's primary, elementary and middle schools into two buildings, a K-5 building and a 6-8 building on the middle school campus.

Issue 44 is a 0.9 mill bond issue that would relocate the high school athletic facilities to its current campus.

"The way we see it, it's just a completion of that original vision when we built that high school is that eventually we would get all the high school athletic facilities over the high school," said Superintendent Jeff Ferguson.

Ferguson said the reason for splitting the issues was to remain transparent.

"The board of education though it was very important to be transparent, so they didn't want any confusion when you look at one number and then say 'how much is the athletics going to cost," said Ferguson.
