Ohio School Board May Ask Vot­ers for Bond Is­sue

The Bond Buyer - - Market News -

It’s a sure thing that within two years, the Wor­thing­ton, Ohio, Board of Ed­u­ca­tion will ask vot­ers for both an op­er­at­ing levy and a bond is­sue to be­gin to deal with cramped, ag­ing build­ings.

The tim­ing and size of that re­quest is still up in the air. If the board fol­lows the rec­om­men­da­tions of a com­mu­nity group, the even­tual price tag could top $150 mil­lion, which doesn’t in­clude reg­u­lar main­te­nance and tech­nol­ogy up­grades.

“What the board votes to put on the bal­lot as a bond is­sue will de­ter­mine the scope of the project,” said Wor­thing­ton Su­per­in­ten­dent Trent Bow­ers. The task force rec­om­mends spend­ing $46 mil­lion on the first phase.
