Minden school bond issue headed for November ballot

MINDEN — Members of the Minden Board of Education have decided to place a proposed $23.1 million bond issue for a new high school on the Nov. 4 general election ballot.
The board approved the issue 6-0 at its regular meeting Monday.

The action comes a month after the board decided on the scope of the project, $22.53 million. The $570,000 differential between the two figures represents underwriting costs to issue the needed bonds.

The November election follows a September 2013 special election in which patrons struck down a similar project, which carried a price tag of nearly $26 million.
