HMS bond issue fails by seven votes

The third attempt at a bond issue in the HMS school district barely missed out on a supermajority, KIWA reports. There were 1518 votes cast, so 60 percent would be 911 votes in favor of the bond issue, and it got 904.

Now we wait to see if the district will make good on its threat to close a facility if the vote failed. This is the second-closest bond referendum failure that I’ve paid close attention to, but the results of the closest one resulted in something much more dire.

The Central district of Elkader got its bond issue passed, and so did West LyonOsage’s failed a second time.
