Voters Back Canyon, Hereford ISD Bond Issues

Two area school districts got favorable reviews from voters on bond issues on Tuesday night.

First, in Canyon Independent School District, voters approved a $197 million bond issue for the district, which is the largest bond ever passed for the school system. Voters gave the bond a passing score, with 68 percent of voters approving the bond, versus 31 percent voting against. The result came with about 23,000 votes cast in the race. Voters can expect to see the money used for campus renovations and renovations to Kimbrough Memorial Stadium, officials with the district say.

Meanwhile, in Hereford Independent School District, voters gave the green light to a $22.4 million bond package in that district for campus renovations. Voters approved the bond on a 67 percent to 33 percent margin, with about 3,500 votes cast.

All results are unofficial until canvassed.
