ALTOONA REFERENDUM: Voters Against $4m Bond
Altoona voters shot down a multimillion dollar construction project.
The bond referendum held Tuesday asked voters to help finance an expansion to the Greater Altoona Community Service Campus.
The $4-million plan was to expand the campus’ youth area, renovate workout areas, upgrade the locker rooms and improve the parking lot.
Property taxes were set to increase 34-cents per $1,000 of taxable valuation but 64% of voters decided against it.
The proposal needed a 60% approval rate for it to pass.
Unofficial results show 1,080 ballots were cast.
