Columbus District Reacts to Failed Bond Issue

Too much of a tax burden. That's the reason Superintendent David Carriger believes the $30.6 million Columbus school bond issue didn't pass Tuesday. The bond would have allowed the district to build a new grade school building, and renovate the high school and football stadium, as well as storm shelters. Carriger tells News Talk KZRG the next step.

"We really haven't had any discussions on what's the next step. We're in limbo right now."

Carriger says this also means the district will not be receiving the addition funds from the state that would allow them to purchase smart boards, and desks.
