MPS Board Listens To Firms On Bond Issue
The Minden Public School Board of Education met on Oct. 9 for its regularly scheduled monthly meeting.
The meeting was important to the board because they have narrowed the field down to their top three choices for financial agents for purchasing bonds for a proposed school bond vote.
MPS had sliced nearly five million dollars off its first estimated bond issuance which now looks to be around the 25 million figure to build a new high school, move the existing bus barn and renovations to East Elementary and C.L. Jones.
The three agents who presented to the school board were D.A. Davidson from Omaha, First National Capital Markets from Omaha and RBC Capital Markets L.L.C. from Denver, Colo. Each presentation was unique and had a different approach to why they should be chosen by the board to issue the bonds.
