A big rally was held Monday to show support for the Zanesville city school bond issue. Voters will decide the 5.73 mills 27 year issue at the polls on Tuesday. The rain did not keep away the more than 3000 students, parents and faculty who gathered to show how much they support the bond issue. Zanesville Mayor Jack Fenton partcipated in the event and said it is an important issue that voters should approve. At the end of the rally hundreds of balloons were launched. If the issue passes the state will pay 68-percent of the cost of building eight new schools. The school district's share will be 32-percent. If you own a home valued at 50-thousand dollars your cost if the bond issue passes will be 87-dollars-74 cents a year.
