School Board Asks Residents to Review New Bond

Posted: Updated:

Last night, the school board approved a motion to move forward with a new bond to ask residents to vote on in April. 

Back in December, the $125 million vote failed. And, now the board is asking voters to reconsider a new proposal.

They decided to narrow down the numbers by asking residents to consider a $40 million project instead.

The key factor this time around is security upgrades at all of the Minot Public School Buildings and the construction of a new elementary school in Southeast Minot.

"The majority of the growth has been in our elementary schools. That is evident by the portable classrooms that you see throughout the community. So, the next step would be will depend on what will happen. We won't be able to run another bond issue until December of 2014," says Superintendent Mark Vollmer.

A vote for the new bond will be held on April 8 at the Minot Auditorium.
