BCS to propose building new PK-7 facility

The Benton-Carroll-Salem School District has decided to go for it.

The facilities planning committee, which is chaired by Randy Genzman, Jamie Beier-Grant, Richard Thorbahn and Bill Poiry, started discussing the issue of whether or not the school district should go forward with building a new school in December and recently presented a proposal to the school board and received approval by a 5-0 vote for the new initiative to be placed on the ballot in August. In all, the costs would total $46.6 million.
