Nordheim voters OK funds for school upgrades

Kevin Wilson

Voters in the Nordheim school district overwhelmingly approved a $3.75 million bond issue Saturday.

The bond, which passed 75-18, will help upgrade the school district's buildings and also provide funding for some other projects.

"We are looking at some renovations within our current buildings and addressing some code issues," said superintendent Kevin Wilson. "We will also be looking at a band hall and possibly a multipurpose facility."

The bond also includes the purchase of new buses, Wilson said.

Wilson, in his first year as superintendent in Nordheim, was pleased with the voters response to the need for the bond issue.

"I have been very impressed with the community support for our district," Wilson said. "We have asked for and received community input and are looking forward to continuing that relationship."
