Discussion is ongoing about the Bowling Green Primary School renovation. The School board told the board they want the full funding, which is $12.5 million. That's $3.5 million more than the school board currently has to spend on the project.

Taking a break...then will continue discussions

It all boils down to will the BOS give the school board the extra $3.5 million. If they do, where will the money come from?

The BOS borrowed $3 million earlier this year to contribute to the renovation.
Funding this project added about 2 cents to the real-estate tax rate for the next 20 years, according to board Chairman Floyd Thomas.

The BOS does not have a decision tonight. Floyd THomas, board chair, said they need to solidify exactly what the cost of the Davis-Bacon Act (federal wage guideline-mandatory), and to have discussions with the project contractor A.D. Whitaker.

"He said the bos "needs to digest" this information.
