Manhattan-Ogden School Board members are getting closer to finalizing plans for a bond issue, at a cheaper price tag.
Board members met with folks in the community today to discuss a less expensive, edited version of a bond issue.
Board members were able to lower the amount from $113 million to little more than $99 million.
School officials say they are closing in on a decision for the bond package.
"We'll probably place a bond issue in front of voters in November. Right now it looks like somewhere in the neighborhood of about $100 million and probably with some extras on it that voters could approve or not approve in addition to the main ones," said Bob Seymour, Manhattan-Ogden Asst. Superintendent.
The board will hold another special work session May 14th.
