Possibly the single largest school bond bond issue ever in the state is to be put to voters in Rapid City on September 17th:
It will be up to voters to decide whether Rapid City Area Schools will receive the $250 million it seeks for an array of construction projects.
The district’s board of education on Monday approved a resolution authorizing a referendum on a bond issue in that amount. Plans to close several schools and build several others over the next three to six years will move forward with a few caveats.
From experience here in Brookings, The Rapid City School Board might be serving up too big a bite for Rapid City taxpayers to swallow. Keep watching this one.
