Last night Monte Green, a representative of the ad hoc committee who is looking into the feasibility of building a community rec. center, asked the USD-379 school board to allow voters to make the decision on whether such a facility should be funded by a mill levy through the school district.

Green acknowledged that the proposal probably would not be ready in time to place on the November ballot for this year’s Fall election, which would mean it would have to either wait another year or hold a special election in the spring -- the cost of which would be split between the school district and the City of Clay Center.
