Bond Measure Could Head to Ballot

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — The Springfield School District took its first step towards asking voters for more funding.

The board discussed the possibility of placing a bond measure on an upcoming ballot.

The timing and amount hasn’t been determined. Any money would be used to replace Hamlin Middle School as well as increase technology district wide.

“Well, we’re excited as we move forward because we really feel we’re listening to the community,” said Board Chair Jonathan Light. “We feel this is something they want and we know as a district its something we need so it always feels good when you move forward together to make these projects come to fruition.”

The district says a recent survey showed support for a bond around $60 million. The board will take action on the bond later this month.
