Voters in West Virginia reject $5.8M bond for new school

PETERSTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — A bond that would build a new school has been rejected for the second time this year by voters in West Virginia.

The Bluefield Daily Telegraph reports Monroe County voters rejected the $5.8 million bond with Saturday's unofficial total of 1,223 to 877. The bond would've helped build a new school for Peterstown elementary and middle school students.

The county now loses $16 million from the state Building Authority that could've been used to fund most of the $24 million school.

School board member Andrew Evans says "residents were obviously in an anti-tax mood when they hit the polls," as the County Commission established a $100 ambulance fee in August on every household before the referendum.

Voters rejected a $10 million bond in June that would've built the school and address other facility needs.
