Aug. 31, 2009
Vote provides funds for several construction projects

From The Charleston Gazette: Putnam County, W. Va., residents have approved the county's largest-ever school bond and its first in 33 years. The $57 million proposal was the fourth proposed school bond to come before Putnam voters since 1976, the last time a bond was approved. Voters rejected proposed bonds for school improvements in 1993, 2001 and 2002. The bonds will provide funding for new facilities to house Confidence Elementary, Buffalo High, Winfield Middle and Poca Middle. It also would cover the cost of new auxiliary gyms at all of the county's four high schools and renovations at Poca Elementary School.
