Library one step closer to new building
Officials from the Basehor Community Library are one step closer to acquiring a new building.
Throughout today, patrons in the 50-square mile library district have been voting on a $2.99 million bond issue. If approved by voters, the funds would pay for the construction of a new facility on 158th Street.
Minutes ago, the Leavenworth County Clerk's Office posted results from one of the four voting precincts, advanced ballots. The totals are listed below:
- 174 -- Yes
- 78 -- NO
Library officials, who are in Leavenworth County monitoring the vote totals, said they were pleased so far with the results. However, they tempered enthusiasm and wanted to reserve comment until all the totals are finalized.
Polling places closed at 7 p.m. The clerk's office is still calculating totals from Basehor city, Fairmount township and the Glenwood precincts.
