We talk again today with Vandalia Superintendent of Schools Rich Well on the project that will bring air conditioning to the high school building. Well says more goes into this project than just the A/C.
The overall cost of the project is big—with $120,000 for asbestos removal and then the HVAC work at better than $1,998,000. But, Well says they are able to use bonds and possibly some TIF funds to pay for the project.
Well does remind everyone that this project will not lead to any tax increase, just the extension of bonds.
