LIBERTY - Steps were taken Monday night to secure financing for the Casey County Middle School renovation project.
Casey County Board of Education approved two resolutions to secure funds from school building revenue bonds to finance the $1.1 million project. The school district will put up half the money for the project and the bonds will be for $690,000.
The school system has a $339,408 grant and will put in $231,064 in district funds.
Rosemary Woodruff of First Kentucky Securities said the bond sale will be Sept. 16.
The board approved the $1,161,150 base bid from Doss & Horky in Danville to install a new heating and air conditioning unit, replace ceiling tiles and install new controls on the mechanical system and another $51,220 bid to replace exhaust fans.
The project is scheduled to begin immediately after plans are approved and will be completed in May 2004.
In other money matters, the board set the tax rate the same as last year and approved a $18.1 million working budget.
