Sandwich school bond initiative fails

SANDWICH – Voters on Tuesday declined a request for Sandwich District 430 to borrow money to fund life-safety improvments at schools.

A plan to increase the district’s bonding authority by $700,000 failed by a vote of 990 to 854, according to unofficial totals.

With bonds sold to build Sandwich Middle School being paid off in 2018, the owner of a home with an assessed value of $150,000 in the district would see the bond and interest portion of their tax bill decrease by about $50 a year had the measure passed. Instead, the same homeowner will see about a $170 decrease.
