Highland OKs sale of bonds


The Highland school board Monday night approved the sale of $3.7 million in bonds to pay for projects approved by voters in September.

Superintendent Ken Crawford explained the resolutions the board was approving.

“You are approving everybody who will be dealing with our money,” he said.

The board approved four resolutions, each on a 6-0 vote with board member Mike Golden absent.

The board’s action Monday night followed the acceptance of a bid from UMB Bank of Kansas City on Feb. 10 with an interest rate of 1.44 percent on the 10-year bonds.

Proceeds from the bond will pay for two projects: the playground renovation at Highland Elementary School and the replacement of heating and air conditioning at the high school and middle school.

Other high school projects include replacement of windows, an addition to the fine arts classroom and renovation of locker rooms.
