BONHAM, TX - The Bonham Independent School District held a public meeting this evening, hoping to inform and persuade residents to vote 'yes' on the upcoming $40 million bond election.
The price tag is 40 million dollars, and that money would go to repairing and expanding facilities in the Bonham school district.
Superintendent Sonny Cruse says four out of six schools are 30 to 50 years old, and are outdated and not meeting the students' needs.
Tonight he spoke with parents about the improvements he hopes to achieve if the bond passes, and if it's worth the increase in taxes of about $30 per month.
"My opinion is this is very well needed in this town, the children are first, the adults are second, they become our future," said Susan Williams, a Bonham parent.
Registration for the bond election ends on October 5th and you parents and residents can cast their votes from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on November 3rd.
