New School Going To The Voters

If it is approved on the bal­lot, another Williams County dis­trict will have a new school.

The Bryan Times reports that North Cen­tral Local Schools is ask­ing vot­ers to approve a 1.4-mill levy for 37 years to pay for a new high school that would con­nect to the junior high wing.

The levy would cost the owner of a $100,000 prop­erty $49 in 2015, $42 in 2016, and $35 in 2017, based upon pre­dic­tions of future prop­erty val­ues, which have been increas­ing.

The build­ing would cost just under $8.8 Mil­lion accord­ing to esti­mates, and the state would fund half of that amount.

A Locally Funded Ini­tia­tive for $816,960 would cover what the state won’t.

The new high school would pro­vide more class­room space for sci­ence labs, com­puter labs, a band room and art room.

If approved, con­struc­tion would begin in 2015 with com­ple­tion pro­jected for 2016.
