SHARE DAVIS RESIDENTS ARE URGED TO VOTE TODAY ON BOND ISSUE

If you live in Davis County, go vote today.

Voters are being asked by the School Board to approve a $40 million bond proposal to build a new high school and make improvements in other schools to cope with a rapidly growing student population.If approved, the bond would require a 4-mill tax increase, costing the owner of a $75,000 home about $35 more per year in property taxes.

About $27 million of the bond would be used to build a new high school in the north end of the county. The remainder would be used to build new classrooms and install air conditioning in elementary schools, making them suitable for year-round use.

The school district projects that high school enrollment will reach about 5,000 by 1996, about 5,000 more than the capacity of the district's six high schools.

Some residents, however, believe the district should postpone the bond election to see what effect budget cuts at Hill Air Force Base will have on enrollment.
