ST. JOSEPH — St. Joseph schools is saving more than $550,000 in taxpayer dollars by refunding a bond that voters approved a decade ago.

The school board put the finishing touches on the money-saving effort Monday after it adopted a bond ratification resolution that would both refund a 2010 bond and accept a bid issued for the 2020 Series II bond.
