Renovation plans for Eudora High School were presented at a district meeting sponsored by the Committee of Concerned Taxpayers, a group formed in March to oppose the $750,000 bond issue intended to help pay for a new high school building.

The group maintained that renovation costs, based on architectural reports the school board had undertaken for the new building proposal, would be about $400,000, or less than half the cost of new construction.

Concerned Taxpayers proposed to progressively renovate the building by spending about $100,000 per year.

Others on the council were Bessie Schenck, dietary representative; Inez Borchers, gardening representative; Charlie forth, social representative; Florence Quinlan, religious representative; and George Schehrer, recreation representative; and Ning Jordan, advisor and activity director.
