|Tuesday, April 4, 2017|
Pattonville voters gave their support to Pattonville's Proposition K on the April 4 election ballot. Prop K is a $23 million zero tax rate increase bond issue, which funds repair, safety and improvement projects at every school in the district. Approval of the bond issue will not increase the district's tax rate.
"We thank the Pattonville community for getting out to vote," said Dr. Michael Fulton, superintendent of schools. "The passage of Prop K enables us to maintain and update our schools, keeping them safe for students and providing facilities that meet their instructional needs. We appreciate the Pattonville community. Our residents have a long history of supporting our schools, and our district is strong because of it."
After nearly 6,500 votes were cast in Tuesday's election, the bond issue received a 80.32 percent favorable vote. Approximately 57.15 percent was required for the measure to pass.
