Fulton has the cash for projects like a new gym and a kindergarten center now. Voters on Tuesday approved a $27.5 million bond issue.
Superintendent Jacque Cowherd says he was nervous before the vote because of the economic downturn. But he says the district worked for a year to get support for the bond.
“There was a lot of buy-in from a lot of different groups in the community, and that’s what kind of kept me positive.”
Cowherd says the money will go to new construction and several renovations, but some of the work may have to wait until next summer. The election was two months later than expected because of the coronavirus pandemic, delaying the construction schedule.
This bond does not raise taxes for Fulton residents. It extends the current debt level.
