Bond referendum

York County residents will go to the polls on Tuesday to decide whether the county should borrow about $89 million to pay for renovations and improvements at several government facilities:

▪ $38.5 million – Expansion, security improvements at the Moss Justice Center

▪ $26 million – Expansion, security improvements at the Family Court center on Heckle Boulevard

▪ $22 million – Improvements to the county recycling center, other space needs at the Public Works Department

▪ $2.1 million – Expansion, security improvements at the Fort Mill magistrate’s office

▪ $565,000 – Expansion, security improvements at the Clover magistrate’s office

If approved, York County would have to raise taxes to pay back the debt. The increase on a $100,000 home would be $27.60 a year.
