At Thursday night’s West Point-Beemer School Board meeting the board voted to move ahead with plans for a multi-purpose addition at an estimated cost of $825,000.
Superintendent Bill McAllister says the plan is to raise the levy for the building fund to nearly 1 percent to help pay for the addition over seven years. The addition will be used for P.E. , meetings and other activities.
McAllister has put together a preliminary budget which calls for overall spending of about $500,000 less than last year.
