Monz e 11/72 ll/7 11/73 iI/7 f A $473,191 building bond issue to fund and equip a new $3 million high school complex is slated to be placed on the November 4 gen- era/ election ballot, following action by Mon- roe School Board members Monday evening. Board members approved a resolution with a ballot title, requesting the Snohomish County Auditor to place the question on theba/lot, Mon- roe School Superintendent Royston Cottam said. The bonds will be issued forl5years and over that period, Cottam calculated that on a $30,000 home, it would cost a taxpayer about $9.86 per year on the principal, or about 82 cents per month. "The board feels that that's a good bargain, considering the fact that the total cost includes equipping the building too," Cottam said. He said the board planned to convert the present high school into a three year junior high, allowing for an expanded vocational train- ing program and the existing middle school would become an elementary facility, replacing Cen- tral school. In addition, Cottam said, Central would be used for office space and a ware- house. A building bond issue committee has been formed and persons interested in serving on the committee may contact the school district office at 794-7777. A similar measure, although higher, was de- feated at the polls a year ago.
