It was time to move the school bond money forward in paying for two new middle schools in Billings from the November bond election.School District 2 (SD-2) locked in interest rates and received a lower rate than earlier thought.  The savings was $22 million!

That was one of the highlights of a trustee meeting this week.  During the three hour meeting the district agreed to build the first of two new in Billings Heights.  The chosen ground is on the corner of Bench Boulevard and Barrett Road.  The West Billings site at 56th and Grand will be constructed after the Heights location is built.

The new Heights middle school will open for business beginning in August of 2016, this according to SD-2′s construction schedule.  With the new numbers, taxpayers will pay $6.45 per month based on a home valued at $200,000.

Also at the meeting on January 20th there was talk from some of the trustee’s to run a mill levy this May for high school funding.  But Terry Bouck, Superintendent of SD-2 opposed the move, saying,

there is voter fatigue doing this so soon after this past fall’s bond issue vote.

Bouck went on to say,

we need to accomplish the goals that have already been set before asking the taxpayers for more.
