RAMONA, Calif. (AP) - A school district in San Diego County is asking voters to approve $66 million in bonds to modernize its aging buildings - even though residents have rejected four previous attempts.
The North County Times says trustees for the Ramona Unified School District approved the measure this month. It will appear on the November ballot.
Superintendent Robert Graeff says buildings need work ranging from roof repairs to plumbing.
The proposal would cost the average homeowner about $15 a month.
Ramona has never passed a school bond. Some of the bond money would be used to repay a $25 million loan the district took out in 2002 to make upgrades after the last bond measure failed.
