Minot school board to ask voters for $125 million

MINOT, N.D. (AP) — The Minot Public School Board will ask voters to approve a $125 million bond referendum to pay for new school construction and to improve school security.

MINOT, N.D. (AP) — The Minot Public School Board will ask voters to approve a $125 million bond referendum to pay for new school construction and to improve school security.

The board approved the resolution at a meeting Monday morning. The Minot Daily News reports that the election would likely happen on Dec. 10.

Board president Jim Rostad says the money would go toward construction of a new elementary school on land the district already owns, the purchase of land and construction of a second high school, classroom additions and renovations at various elementary schools, converting am existing school building into a fourth middle school, and various security improvements.

Business manager Scott Moum says the bond issue would increase school property taxes for the owner of a $200,000 home by $456 per year.
