Voters to decide fate of Tipp City bond issue

Local News

TIPP CITY, Ohio (WDTN) – The Tipp City school district has decided to move forward with a new bond issue following state questioning by the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission on discrepancies made in a master plan of a classroom project.

In a letter sent to the district, the OFCC says funding could be reduced for the project because plans were listed for students through the sixth grade, but the OFCC says the district was telling the public the bond issue would pay for classrooms for students through fifth grade.

“I’ve told the school board that I will ask the Inspector General, the State Auditor, and the State Attorney General to look into irregularities if there were any with the OFCC and see if we can correct that,” says Senator Steve Huffman.

Voters will decide next Tuesday to approve the bond issue for new classrooms.
