Voters say no to Lincoln County school bond
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Voters in Lincoln County said no to a $24 million bond that would have built two new schools and made serious repairs to others.
A Lincoln County clerk said 595 people voted in favor of the school bond levy, but 1,077 people voted against it Saturday night.
The money would have created two new schools and financed major improvements to others, like Guyan Valley Middle School, which was built in the 1920s. Opponents of the bond feared it would lead to raised taxes, according to a news release.
