VIDEO: School Bond Issue To Be Voted On In December In Pontotoc

PONTOTOC, Miss. (WCBI)- Residents living in Pontotoc will soon be going to the polls to vote on an $11.75 million bond issue for school improvements.

A public hearing was held Thursday to tell residents the plans.

Superintendent Dr. Michelle Bevins says the money will cover infrastructure improvements at all of the district’s campuses.

She says it’s about improving the education process for the children.

“Because we believe our students deserve the best. The best of everything and they give us their best every day, and we should be able to do that for them too,” said Dr. Bevins.

Bevins says if passed, the measure would cost property owners an average between $150 and $300 a year.

Residents will go to the polls on December 19th.
