Lincoln County Voters Say No to School Bond

Lincoln County Voters on Saturday cast ballots on a multi-million dollar school bond issue that would fund building a new elementary school, a new middle school, and would make improvements and additions to West Hamlin and Harts Elementary schools, and would go toward athletic facilities at Lincoln County High School. Voters said no to all of it. The $24 million school levy failed, with 75 percent voting against, and 25 percent in favor. If the measure had passed, the West Virginia School Building Authority would have kicked in $17 million.
