Parshall residents approve $5.4M bond issue for schools

PARSHALL, N.D. — Parshall residents have approved a $5.4 million bond issue to fund construction of a new high school and middle school and renovations to the elementary school.

The Minot Daily News reports that nearly three-fourths of the 354 voters in Tuesday’s election favored the plan.

The bond issue will raise taxes by about $100 per year for the owner of a $120,000 home in the district and by 50 cents per acre of agricultural land.

The Three Affiliated Tribes will contribute $7.6 million to the project on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation.

It was the second election on the project. Voters last August narrowly rejected the bond issue.
