LOLO — Tuesday is the last chance for Lolo residents to vote on the proposal for a new school building.

Residents should have received a ballot in the mail for two proposals last month.

One of the proposals calls for building a new school on Farm Lane while the second is for selling the current school property.

The Lolo School campus is currently comprised of six buildings that pose a number of problems -- from access and safety to efficiency and room for growth.

Superintendent Dale Olinger has been vocal about the need for an entirely new facility.

If passed, the bond would increase taxes by about $185 per year on a home valued at #100,000.

Ballot drop off for the school bond will take place in the loop of Lolo School tomorrow from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m.
