Kingston going back to voters for school bond issue

The Kingston Community Schools are gearing up for their third attempt to pass a school bond since a six million dollar bond request in March of 2016 was defeated.

The district came back a second time in August of 2016 with a $5,400,000 million dollar proposal which was also defeated, with both issues failing by less than 100 votes.

Supt. Matt Drake said, the district heard from their residents they did not want to increase their school millage taxes from the current 5.62 percent.

The current Bond proposal in the November election is for $4,800,000 million dollars to be paid back over in just over 19 years, leaving millage rates at their current level.
