Facilities committee sets sights on new bond proposal

At its first meeting, the Helena Public Schools Facilities Planning Committee determined that its directive is to consider every option available and put together a new bond proposal.

The committee was established at the Helena Public Schools Board of Trustees meeting on Tuesday, and the discussion during its introductory meeting on Thursday centered on the committee’s directive and alternative options for a bond proposal that could be approved by Helena voters.

The committee includes trustees Libbi Lovshin, Aidan Myhre and Terry Beaver, who is serving as chair.

The meeting also marked the 147th publicly advertised facility meeting — including school tours — since the process began in October 2007.
