Unofficial results in Tuesday's special election show that votes in favor of the bond proposal for the new Laramie High School in the lead by nearly 2,000 votes.

As of 9:00 pm Tuesday night, the Albany County Clerk's office says 4,118 votes in favor of the bond issue out of 6,536 votes cast.  This gives the "For" votes a lead by just over 1,700 votes.

Items that the bond proposal would help fund at the new high school include a tennis court, an athletic stadium, an expansion of the auditorium and theater, research and design labs among other items.

Property owners are estimated to see a tax increase of about $38 per year for every $100,000 of property value, with industrial property owners can expect an estimated $46 per year tax increase for every $100,000 of property value.

The results are currently unofficial pending approval, expected on Thursday.
