CHARLESTON - Voters in the R-1 Charleston School District are voting today on the $1.4 million bond issue for a new high school building. The proposed bond issue will not raise the taxes for the 1965-66 school year nor the following year, but after the third year the tax rate would probably be set at $3.50 per $100 assessed valuation. The new building would be located on a 40-acre plot in the southeast portion of Charleston off of old Highway 60 east of the city.
