After a series of school bond elections in the county so far this year another one is coming for Whitebead School.

On the ballot a couple of propositions totaling $300,000.

Most of that, $240,000, is to pay for three new buses. The remaining $60,000 is for eight new heat and air units at the school, which is a third of all the units covering the school.

If the issue is passed by at least 60 percent support it would increase property taxes in the Whitebead district by about $8.40 for every $100 now paid.

Also on the April 2 ballot are school board races in two Garvin County towns.

In Paoli the race is Kent Stewart against Joselyn Medina, while in the Elmore City-Pernell district the candidates are Jasmin Tadlock and Amy Shebester.

Another school board race in nearby Wayne has Kristen Harper going against Abbi Castle.

The last day to register to vote for these elections has already passed, while March 27 is the deadline to request mailed absentee ballots.
