This means a twelve cent increase on every 100 dollars a Columbia resident pays in property taxes. School board member Jonathan Sessions says this bond will go towards building a new elementary school and eliminating trailers at the elementary level. School board members attribute the success of the bond issue to the board&rsquo;s communication with voters.</p> Wed, 04 Apr 2012 14:23:56 +0000 Scott Kanowsky & Alexandra Olgin & Sarah Tucker 11791 at http://kbia.org
