Editorial: Yes for Entiat bond

There are a lot of things that benefit from some streamlining and thoughtful downsizing. Judging from the plans, the Entiat School District’s proposed bond and school modernization project is one.

The bond on the November ballot substitutes for the bond and project that in February failed by a whisker to obtain the required 60 percent majority. The $7.95 million bond that received 58 percent support is now a $5.6 million bond, downsized by $2.35 million but accomplishing many of the same necessary improvements and modernizations. When the bond failed, the district hired a new architect to work on a new plan. The school board approved, and the district says the new plan accomplishes the same priorities at 30 percent less cost.
