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.
