Despite the results, the Jim Ned Bond program has been a polarizing topic for people living in Tuscola, Buffalo Gap, and Lawn.
Despite the results, the Jim Ned Bond program has been a polarizing topic for people living in Tuscola, Buffalo Gap, and Lawn.

Majority of the proposed $20.7-million project would go to a new elementary school. Currently, there are two Jim Ned Elementary schools in Buffalo Gap and Lawn.

If the bond passes, those schools would be consolidated and all of the students would attend the new elementary school in Tuscola. An appraised home value of $100,000 would see an estimated tax increase of $180/year.

Those in support of the bond program say it's a way to help school conditions from class sizes to safety and security. Those who oppose the idea say losing the schools means losing a community's identity.

People were able to vote at all city hall locations.
