In Lenoir County there's a big issue on the ballot voters will have a chance to vote for Tuesday. Lenoir County Election Director Dana King says the $69.7 million school bond has been a hot topic. The bond aims to improve every elementary school in Lenoir County, along with combining Savannah Middle with Contentnea Elementary. The tax increase for the bond adds up to an extra five cents for every $100 worth of property. So for a $100,000 house, a homeowner would pay an extra $50 a year because of the bond. Tuesday's vote on the bond issue does determine whether it's a go or not.
