School Board to reconsider decision on Voters Pamphlet
March 1, 2012 · Updated 11:09 AM
At 7 p.m. tonight, the Mercer Island School District Board of Directors will reconsider funding an explanatory statement to be included in the King County Voters Pamphlet concerning the proposal to sell bonds to finance the rebuilding of Mercer Island schools. The vote will take place at a special meeting that was already set for a closed session concerning a real estate transaction.
On Feb. 23, the Board voted 3 to 2 against participating in the pamphlet, citing among other reasons, the $3,000 cost. The School Board is asking voters to fund a bond issue totaling nearly $200 million to update and expand Island schools.
The meeting will be held in the School District Administration building at 4160 86th Ave. S.E.
