With only a few days left in early voting, some residents living in the Jim Ned CISD school district are not happy with the proposed school bond package. Tonight, a community meeting will be held at Jim Ned High School at 7 p.m. Two concerned residents are expected to present alleged facts on why they believe the cost of the new school is too expensive. They're also expected to share how they believe taxpayers will draw the short end of the stick if the bond is approved.

The school bond package has a price tag of $20.87 million. If passed, most of the bond money would go towards building a consolidated elementary school, that would replace the existing Buffalo Gap Elementary and Lawn Elementary.

KTAB LaDyrian Cole is going to tonight's meeting and will have more at 10. For minute updates of the meeting, you can follow her on Twitter @ladyriancole or on Facebook at 'LaDyrian Cole'.
