Unofficial results on Nov. 3 had the 30-year, $31.25 million bond issue failing by 19 votes. Monday’s recount confirmed that the issue passed 3,312 to 3,310.

It will cost the owner of a $100,000 home about $110 a year.

“This is a great day for the students. They deserve the best,” said Tom Kaelber, Buckeye Valley School Board president. “We’re excited that it passed. And we’re excited for the kids.”

Kaelber said the funds will be used to build two new elementary school buildings.
