$250M bond coming before South Salt Lake voters

(South Salt Lake) On Nov. 3 voters in South Salt Lake will vote on a $256 million bond proposed by the Granite School District Board of Education to fund a laundry list of projects throughout the district. Residents in other areas the district serves, such as Holladay, West Valley City, Kearns, Magna and Taylorsville, will also vote on the matter.

The requested funds would be used to pay for construction costs to build and rebuild or improve existing schools.

“We’re air conditioning 51 schools throughout the district, rebuilding five schools and then building three new schools,” said Granite School District Communications and Marketing Director Ben Horsley.

Of the schools that would receive the air conditioning, four are located in or serve students from South Salt Lake. Those schools on the project list are Mill Creek and James E. Moss elementary schools, Granite Park Junior High School and Cottonwood High School.
