GARRISON, N.D. (AP) - Residents of Garrison will vote in the coming days in the fourth school bond election in less than two years.

The Feb. 5 ballot measure asks voters to approve $5.9 million for expansion projects at the town’s elementary school and high school.

KXMC-TV reports that (https://bit.ly/1BJucSa ) residents in the community of about 1,450 people have rejected a school expansion three previous times. But Superintendent Steve Brannan says the proposal lost by just seven votes in the most recent election on Nov. 4, so school officials will try again.

A $5.9 million bond issue would raise property taxes for the owner of a $150,000 home by about $150 per year.
