Las Cruces School Bond And Mill Levy Approved

Las Cruces – About three quarters of voters approved a $65 million dollar bond issue and two mill capital improvement levy for the Las Cruces Public Schools.

The bond will pay for construction projects at nearly every school in the district.

The mill levy will help pay for improvements to school buildings and will purchase property for future schools.

The district says the tax rate will remain the same. That's because the district continues to pay off bonds approved by voters in previous years.
