Voters in TGU school district reject $8.9 million bond issue

December 14, 2018

TOWNER, N.D. (AP) — Voters in the Towner-Granville-Upham school district have rejected the idea of raising property taxes to fund school upgrades.

Unofficial results show that nearly two-thirds of voters in Wednesday’s election opposed an $8.9 million bond referendum to pay for upgrades and new construction in Granville and Towner.

Had the measure passed, the owner of a $100,000 house would have paid about $130 more in taxes per year.

There are 205 students enrolled in K-12 at Towner and 126 students in K-12 at Granville.
