Voters decline BIC proposed millage increase

CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - Voters have declined the proposed millage increase for the Buffalo Island Central School District.

The proposal failed by 100 votes with 453 residents voting no and 353 residents voting yes.

These are the unofficial finals as of Tuesday night.

The proposal was to build a K-6th grade campus in Leachville and a 7th-12th campus in Monette.

The school district was asking for 9 mils.

In September, 60% of voters from Leachville and Monette voted no to a similar millage increase that would have built a central campus on Highway 18 between the 2 towns.
