Recount on the way for Ellensburg Middle School bond

ELLENSBURG, Wash.-- After a close loss this week, Action News learned there will be a recount on the Ellensburg Middle School Bond ballots.

This week, the effort to build a new middle school failed for the fourth time. It missed the 60% threshold by just a handful of votes.

In the end, the loss was so close that the community asked for a recount and the bond committee agreed.

If the results show the first count was correct, the bond committee will still be pushing for a new another vote in November.
