Bond County Unit 2 School Superintendent Wes Olson has been visiting many groups lately, sharing information about the district’s one-cent sales tax proposal that will appear on the March 15 primary ballot.
The tax would generate an estimated $600,000 to $650,000 annually, which would be used for upkeep of district facilities. Some funds would also go to other districts that have Bond County residents as students.
Olson has spoken to the Bond County Board, the Greenville City Council, and civic organizations such as the Greenville Kiwanis Club. He told WGEL his goal in talking with the groups is to let them know where they can find information about the proposal and to answer any questions they may have.
