Sheridan board to pick project manager
SHERIDAN — The Sheridan School Board is expected to select a project manager when it meets at 6 p.m. today in the district office.
The district is planning to place a $2.1 million bond issue on the Nov. 5 ballot. The money would be used for school repairs and improvements.
Passage would not increase property taxes, according to Superintendent Steve Sugg. The rate would remain at $3.24 per $1,000 of asessed valuation.
The district recently refinanced the bond used to build Faulconer-Chapman School, he explained, saving enough to reduce the tax rate by $1.02 per $1,000 assessed valuation. And that's how much it needs to finance the new issue.
The district foresees using the money on a new football stadium roof, heating and ventilation system repairs at the high school, replacement of aging water lines and replacement of old windows with more energy-efficient ones.
