Griswold School District to act on Redistricting Resolution


April 16th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The Griswold Community School District’s Board of Education is expected to act on passing a resolution during their meeting this evening, pertaining to Redistricting on Director Districts, District Maps and the Method of Election. The discussion leading up to tonight’s vote was made necessary following the results of the 2010 census.

If the Board votes to re-district, there would be four geographical districts and three board members elected At-Large, instead of the current seven different districts and one person from each district on the board.  In other business, the Griswold School Board will act on executing a service agreement with Piper Jaffrey, and set May 1st as the sale date for Public Bonds. The bonds would allow the district to borrow against the penny sales tax revenue into the future, on approximately $2.2-million, so that the money is available for current and future projects.

The Board will also act on approving the list of 2012 graduates, garage door bids, and the setting of bid specifications for buses. The meeting begins at 5:30-p.m. in the Central Office Board Room at the Middle School/High School Building.
