School Bond Subcommittee to Meet Tonight to Discuss Potential Bond Projects
The school bond subcommittee, the body whose charge will be to decide if the school will pursue a bond issue, will meet again tonight to dissect and understand potential projects.
The subcommittee has the power to decide if the district should pursue a bond issue. If it chooses to do so, which it hasn't yet, the subcommittee will have to decide the projects that will be part of the bond, which would dictate the amount of the bond (the maximum amount the bond could be is about $25 million). Once these points are decided, it has to go to the voters.
Depending on the capacity of the bond, there could be a ballot for February or May.
Projects for this bond are "nuts and bolts" issues, Ferndale Superintendent Gary Meier said.
Big items on the list include mechanical upgrades, heating and cooling and the removal of asbestos from the Ferndale High School and Middle School.
The subcommittee meets at 6:30 p.m. tonight at the Harding Administration Center.
