Kenmare School Board considers another bond issue vote for expansion

A $14 million bond issue that was narrowly defeated less than a month ago by Kenmare School District patrons, has some lingering effects.

A $14 million bond issue that was narrowly defeated less than a month ago by Kenmare School District patrons, has some lingering effects.

 Among them, pre-approval on a $10 million, low interest loan that was contingent on the bond issue getting popular approval.

Since that didn’t happen, does the Kenmare School Board now try to secure that money another way or deny it altogether?

Those matters were addressed during the regular meeting of the school board Tuesday morning.

“One concern we have is we got pre-approved for a loan from the Department of Public Instruction for just under $10 million,” said school board President Jan Kostad. “We have to make a decision on that by April 17. So, is it proper to have another election in that time frame?” Read EVERY WORD on EVERY PAGE of The Kenmare News by subscribing--online or in print!
