FLORENCE – Florence school officials are inviting the public to learn more about a proposed $16 million school bond issue.

A presentation explaining the proposal that will appear on the November ballot will be held at 6 p.m. on Tuesday in the Old Gym during the Florence School Board meeting.

School officials say that the nearly $16 million bond would take care of a long list of needs and also bring more opportunities to students.

The 11 structures on campus range in age of construction from 1959 to 1995.

Florence Schools Superintendent Bud Scully previously told MTN News that overall, the improvements would cover technological advances, quality of the infrastructure, and safety.

The annual tax increase for owners of a $200,000 home would work out to about $360 if the measure is approved by voters.
