Bond election for Payette schools will be in March

Payette High School, where school district officials hope to undertake a project described as a ‘major build,’ would use most of the construction funds that would be generated through a bond issue which voters are being asked to approve in seven weeks.

PAYETTE — A group of volunteers, Payette Parents Involved, is hosting two town halls regarding the March 12 bond election for Payette School District.

The first meeting is at 6 p.m. today at the Payette Methodist Church, 502 N. 11th St. A second meeting is planned for a week from today, which will begin at 6 p.m. Feb. 19 at the Payette Public Library, 24 S. 10th St.

Per a letter sent by the group, if 67 percent of voters approve the bond, the funds of $30,950,000 will be used to build/rebuild a new high school, gymnasium, auditorium, a career technical building, and do some necessary remodeling to the Westside Elementary.

The group urges all interested district residents to attend one of the town halls.
