Casper, WY (AP) - Voters in Natrona County are deciding a $33 million bond issue to pay for school improvements.
Should voters pass the bond in Tuesday's election, Natrona County property taxes would increase by about $22 annually for every $100,000 of a home's assessed valuation during the next 12 years.
The bond will pay for tighter security at local schools, high-end equipment for students, a new planetarium and remodeled swimming pools at Natrona County, Kelly Walsh and Midwest schools.
The Casper Star-Tribune reports that the money will be in addition to the $280 million already allocated for construction and renovation at Natrona County, Kelly Walsh and Roosevelt high schools in Casper.
