Fresno Gets $225 Million Bond Measure on Ballot

Fresno Unified School District has voted in favor of a $225 million bond measure for November.

The bond would take effect in 2019 after the $280 million Measure Q funds run out. They’ll be used for necessary facilities repairs and upgrades, and to keep teachers.

According to The Fresno Bee, some trustees were cautious about voting in favor of the bond. But ultimately a 6-1 vote allowed for its passage. Brook Ashjian was the only no vote, citing previous Measure Q issues as cause for more input in the 2016 bond measure.

It’s now up to the voters.
