New Vote on July 13, 2021

Laurel-Concord-Coleridge School Board members approved a resolution to call for a special election on July 13.

School Board members were told at their May 10 meeting that the election will be by mail in ballot with ballots expected in mailboxes on or around June 23.

The resolution calls for an election to allow the school district to issue general obligation bonds with a principal amount not to exceed $18,500,000, for the purpose of paying costs of additions, renovations and improvements to existing facilities of the District together with related site improvements; and providing for the necessary furniture, equipment and apparatus for such facilities.

The decision comes after a failed vote last November on a proposed $23 million expansion and renovation project at the school.
