When Pleasant Hill superintendent Tony Scurto went to bed early Wednesday morning, the bond measure was down by 4 votes. He woke up to good news.
"We're pleased that we've got this show of support. It's a very close election, something that we're hoping holds," Scurto said.
There's still a possibility of a recount, but for now Scurto says his plan is to figure out the specifics of spending on building upgrades.
For an example, he wants to remodel the high school kitchen. Now, it's the gymnasium basketball concession area.
Besides a real kitchen, the $17.9 million in bond money would go to two new wings at the high school, security upgrades, and technology.
