ANDERSON Co., S.C. (WSPA) — Voters in Anderson School District One will decide on a $109 million bond referendum.
The vote is set for Tuesday, April 30.
If approved, monies from the referendum would help replace the district’s two middle schools and make upgrades to other buildings.
Anderson School District One Superintendent Robbie Binnicker said it’s costly to maintain the aging schools.
“They’ve really surpassed their life expectancies, and they’re costing us a lot more money to keep up than it would be to build two new middle schools,” Binnicker said.
Property taxes would increase about $64 annually on a $100,000 home if the referendum passes.
