Lolo School Officials Don't Give Up Fight For New School

Posted: Updated:
LOLO -

Lolo District School officials said they are not giving up, after a ballot measure for a $10.5 million bond for Lolo Elementary School failed Tuesday night. Funds from the bond would have gone to building a new school on property owned by the school to house kindergarten through fourth graders.

School officials said the current school is overcrowded causing safety and security risks, but opponents of the bond said they worried about the increased traffic and higher taxes a new school would bring. Although it was not a win for school officials on Tuesday, they said they will still try to get a second school.

"The next step would be to meet with the school board and take a look at the things we can do for a temporary fix that, even in long run, it will probably be more expensive for us. At least we'll meet needs for the short run," Lolo School District Superintendent Mike Magone said.

The vote was 867 to 824.
