New LHS Bond Proposal Election Results
Unofficial results in Tuesday’s special election show that votes in favor of the bond proposal for the new Laramie High School in the lead by nearly 2,000 votes.
As of 9:00 pm Tuesday night, the Albany County Clerk’s office says 4,118 votes in favor of the bond issue out of 6,536 votes cast. This gives the “For” votes a lead by just over 1,700 votes.
Items that the bond proposal would help fund at the new high school include a tennis court, an athletic stadium, an expansion of the auditorium and theater, research and design labs among other items.
Property owners are estimated to see a tax increase of about $38 per year for every $100,000 of property value, with industrial property owners can expect an estimated $46 per year tax increase for every $100,000 of property value.
The results are currently unofficial pending approval, expected on Thursday.
