Columbia’s school board will vote Monday night on a measure to place an $80-million no-tax increase bond issue on the April ballot.

The board’s finance committee and CPS administration are recommending placing the issue on the ballot.

The proposed bond issue would fund numerous projects, including a new Columbia elementary school and career center improvements. The new elementary would be at the John Warner campus, according to the board packet.

The bond issue funding would also pay for the repair and replacement of roofs, windows, heating and air conditioning units and parking lots.
