Drama continues over Moses Lake school construction bond

Posted March 15

— Conflict continues following the narrow passage of a Moses Lake School District construction bond last month.

The Moses Lake School Board is deciding whether to rescind a resolution scheduling another vote on the same school construction bond in late April.

The Columbia Basin Herald reports the board approved the new vote when it was unclear whether the school bond would meet the 60 percent threshold to pass.

Some residents are asking a judge for permission to intervene in a lawsuit seeking to overturn the results of the Feb. 14 election.

On that date, voters in the Moses Lake School District narrowly approved a $135 million school construction bond by just three votes.
