Chamberlain voters pass $5.5 million bond for construction of new elementary and improvements to athletic facilities

Chamberlain voters passed a $5.5 million bond issue on Tuesday after construction costs for a new elementary school and other upgrades skyrocketed due to inflation.  84 percent of voters approved the bond issue.  60 percent voter approval was needed for the bond issue to pass.  In addition to the new elementary school, upgrades included a new gym, new locker rooms, a track upgrade, a concession stand, and a theater upgrade.  The original cost for the school and upgrades was around $28 million, but inflation pushed it up to nearly $35 million.  A groundbreaking for the new elementary school was held last week.
