Absentee ballot location named for Brandon-Evansville election
The administrative office of the Brandon-Evansville School District in Evansville has been named the absentee ballot voting location for the district's special election on Nov. 2.
The administrative office of the Brandon-Evansville School District in Evansville has been named the absentee ballot voting location for the district's special election on Nov. 2. Absentee voting will begin on Sept. 17.
The Brandon-Evansville School Board made the appointment at a special meeting on Monday, July 26.
Voters will decide whether to approve a referendum to provide funding for a building project for the district after the school board approved a resolution to issue general obligation school building bonds and calling for the special election earlier this month.
According to the resolution, the amount of money would not exceed $14.5 million and would go toward "the betterment of school sites and facilities."
The plan for the Evansville school includes the addition of more classrooms, a parent drop-off area and new parking lots.
In Brandon, the plan includes a new gym, career and technical shop and community fitness room additions, as well as new parking lots and a storage shed.
A "yes" vote on the ballot question would result in a property tax increase.
A previous $25.2 million referendum failed in November 2019.
