South Summit School Bond Defeated
Voters in the South Summit School District voted down a $58.6 million bond Tuesday night. The vote was 1,167 against the bond, and 939 for the bond. School officials said the bond was needed to build a new high school and accommodate growth in the Kamas-based district. If it had passed, the bond would have added $96 in taxes a year per $100,000 value of a home in the district. School Superintendent Shad Sorenson told KPCW in October that if the bond failed, the district would have to consider portable classrooms or year-round schools.
