Multi-Purpose Facility Part Of WS Schools Bond Measure Renewal

Ballots will be going out to White Salmon Valley School District voters in early April for a seven-million dollar bond measure renewal to do a series of ten capital projects.  The biggest would be a four-million dollar multi-purpose facility at the Columbia High School and Henkle Middle School campus.  District Superintendent Jerry Lewis says their current facilities are in high demand, and this can provide more space for school and community events.  Lewis says this measure would replace their current bond measure that is being retired, so there will be no increase in tax rate.  Ballots will have to be returned by April 23.
