County Agrees To Hold School Bond Referendum

Tuesday night, the Gaston County Commissioners passed the formal resolution to hold a School Bond Referendum on November 6.

The amount the school system is asking to raise is $175 million for new construction, renovation, and school land acquisition.

This is a critical need in the eastern portion of Gaston County, both East Gaston HS and South Point HS are over capacity with hundreds of students literally living in trailers on both campuses.

With all of the exploding residential growth in the area, this bond is critical and in our opinion, needs passage in November.


Entry filed under: Belmont, Community, Cramerton, East Gaston HS, Front Porch, Mt. Holly, Planning & Zoning, Politics, Porches, School, Small Town, South Point HS.
