D-11 board puts building bond on ballot

       The District 11 Board of Education decided Aug. 3 to let voters decide at the Nov. 2 election whether to fund a $131.7 million bond issue for buildings and facilities.
       The majority believed voters should be given the opportunity - after lengthy research by a volunteer committee identified needs ranging from failing boilers to new schools. Of the bond (adjusted upward slightly before the meeting), $17.6 million would be spent on the district's 13 Westside schools, chiefly for renovation work.
