Voters in Wayne County, WV approve special school bond


It came down to the wire, but voters in Wayne County have approved the county's special school bond.

A total of 56 percent voted for the bond, to 44 percent who voted against it.

That means the county can now move forward with plans for new buildings at Ceredo-Kenova Elementary, as well as Crum Pre-K through 8. Plans are also in place to renovate Wayne County High School.

In April 2014, the West Virginia School Building Authority approved an $18 million grant that was contingent on voters in Wayne County passing the school bond Tuesday, May 13.

Voters rejected the previous bond proposal in 2012.
