Eastmont bond a practical move

Most school bond issues are not so basic. The Eastmont School District is not asking for new schools on new sites. It wants no new edifice glowing on the hill. It wants to fix things, stop leaks, upgrade ancient wiring. It wants buildings big enough to accommodate its students, because enrollment has grown by half since the buildings went up, and they don’t fit. In other words, it would do what any building owner does if they have sense — maintain what they have, modify it if necessary to meet current needs, and think about the future.
