NATCHEZ, Miss. — A Mississippi district is taking steps toward building a new high school and renovating some existing structures.
The Natchez Democrat reports that members of the Natchez-Adams School Board adopted two resolutions Tuesday.
One authorized a lease transaction that would let the district raise $25 million to build a new high school and rehabilitate buildings in the district. The other authorized a note to raise funds for $9 million in improvements for the district.
Board Attorney Bruce Kuehnle Jr. says the $9 million tax note would likely be paid for through a tax increase.
The school board failed to garner enough votes in a special school bond election in May to borrow $35 million for the district-wide renovation and construction projects
