Lexington School Board Approves Resolution for Bond Issue
The Lexington school board approved a resolution for a bond issue this week for a proposed plan, which would see the district build two new buildings. RichlandSource.com reports, one would house Pre-K–6th grade and the other, 7th through 12th grade. The just under $80 million plan would also include, a 750 seat auditorium and an additional gymnasium inside the high school. Voters will see the issue on the November ballot and would cost the owner of a $100,000 about $26 a month or $312 per year. The average age of the district’s current 5 buildings is 69 years old. A Part of the junior high actually was built back in the late 1890’s.
