(WICHITA, Kan.) — Mulvane Schools may look fine on the outside but district leaders know these building need major repairs.
“In regards to the heating and air, removing some asbestos that has to be gone, a lot of those issues that have needed to be done for some time,” said Shon Gerber of Mulvane. “But due to the situation with the economy have been kinda put off.”
That and more would be fixed under the district’s proposed $13.4 million bond, which is up for a vote May 8th.
The new plan includes new classrooms, new storm shelters and a new track for the middle school.
Two years ago, Mulvane voted down a similar bond issue but supports say things have changed since then.
“Now is definitely the right time to be doing something like this,” says Gerber.
Mulvane isn't the only school district dealing with a bond issue, Derby voters go to the polls April 3rd for a more than $66 million bond request
