City Council could support Issaquah School District bond
January 31, 2012
City Council members could decide to support the $219 million bond the Issaquah School District plans to put before voters in April.
The measure is meant to generate dollars to rebuild Clark and Sunny Hills elementary schools and Issaquah Middle School, modernize Liberty High School and relocate Tiger Mountain Community High School.
Officials also plan to use bond funds to improve districtwide heating and ventilation, space and security; and improve athletic fields and stadiums. (Clark Elementary School, Issaquah Middle School and Tiger Mountain Community High School sit inside Issaquah city limits.)
The bond measure is due to appear on the April 17 ballot.
In the meantime, council members agreed Jan. 26 to hold a public hearing Feb. 21 to discuss possible support for the bond. Citizens can comment on the bond at the 7:30 p.m. council meeting in the Council Chambers at City Hall South, 135 E. Sunset Way.
