Bond call likely in May
ROMNEY — The school board will vote Monday on its 1st bond call in more than 20 years.
If approved, the board will ask voters in May to approve a $26 million bond to build 3 new elementary schools in the coming decade, add a gym to Capon Bridge Elementary and make repairs to Hampshire High.
The last school bond call voters here approved was in 1998 for $3.4 million to expand Hampshire High. The project allowed 9th-graders to move to the high school.
