It's a meeting about the future. And the Milford Board of Education hopes the public will find the time to consider the future of the educational system locally.
A 6:30 meeting this (Wed) evening at the Milford school gymnasium will find the board members explaining a proposed building project that's going to the voting public in April. A referendum question will seek voter approval for a $17 million capital project that'll take the Milford education system into the future.
Superintendent Dale Hastings says the public can actually tour the current building and see the district's needs.
The school board's bonding company has numbers to show how the proposed project would be paid off in 25 years. And, this project would find Milford in a position to be an educational partner down the road, in that the Milford school district is already one of just two area districts with over 200,000 square miles in its territory.
Tonight's meeting, Hastings says, will provide the voters with the information they need to be an educated voter April 7th.
