POLLS OPEN UNTIL 9 P.M. ON BATAVIA SCHOOL BOND

The City School Board will hold a special meeting at 9 p.m. today to review the results of today's referendum on an $8.5 million bond issue to build an 18-room elementary school.

Voting will be held until 9 p.m. at the city's three elementary schools on whether to add a fourth K-5 school to serve the southwest area of the city.

Officials expect about a quarter of the district's 8,000 registered voters will take part. School officials say the new school on River Street is needed to relieve overcrowding.

Opponents complain that construction and operating costs will add $108 per year to the average school tax bill, already the highest in the
district's history.
