Measure L passes

Watertight roofs, working heating systems and more classrooms are in store for the 10,000 students of the San Mateo-Foster School District after Measure L received the thumbs up from voters Tuesday.

“We’re delighted that Measure L has passed,” Assistant Superintendent Joan Rosas said.

The $175 million bond measure, which doesn’t raise property taxes, needed 55 percent of votes to pass. It will fund repairs for problems as basic as broken heating systems, cracked asphalt on playgrounds and ancient wiring as well as add classrooms to the district’s most popular schools.
