EUGENE, Ore. — The Bethel School District is considering a bond measure.
The district says its students need new books, computers and serious building repairs.
A committee of staff and community members found a bond measure could help pay for all that.
An old bond is being paid off now.
“Our school district is very frugal with tax-payer dollars. We are not out to increase anyone’s taxes, and we could provide all these improvements, updates and expansions without increasing anyone’s current taxes,” said Pat McGillivray of the Bethel School District.
The district plans to do a community poll to see if voters would support a new bond at the same rate as the old one.
