Cit­i­zens of New­ton County will be asked to cast their bal­lot on a $500,000 school board is­sue. New­ton County School Supt. J. W. (Whit) Richardson states that some $382,000 state match­ing funds will be forth­com­ing for an ele­men­tary school build­ing on Brown Bridge Road on a 50-acre tract of land re­cently do­nated to the school board by Bibb Man­u­fac­tur­ing Com­pany. The new fa­cil­ity will take care of the Por­terdale Ele­men­tary School stu­dents, plus oth­ers who are com­ing into the county. Bibb Man­u­fac­tur­ing owns the ex­ist­ing school build­ings at Por­terdale, and they will be turned back to that firm.
