It is now in the hands of the patrons of the Minden School District to determine the outcome of a special bond election set for Tuesday, September 10.
At the Tuesday, July 9 Minden Board of Education meeting, the board selected the scope of the building project they have been discussing over the past year and a half with community members, staff and administration.
School board member Ken Carpenter made the motion to consider the scope of the project and board member Justin Glanzer seconded the motion to call a bond election for approximately $26 million ($25,995,000). Voting yes were Dr. Julie Krull, Richard Jacobsen, Craig Grams, Rusty Rhynalds, Carpenter and Glanzer.
The board approved option 2 which will be to construct a new high school on the west side of C.L. Jones Middle School and included are a new gymnasium and performing arts center. The bond will also include renovations and additions to C.L. Jones and East Elementary.
