The Eudora Chamber of Commerce voted at the group's Sept. 20 business meeting to endorse the Eudora Schools bond proposals. The vote came after an informational presentation by Eudora Superintendent Marty Kobza during the Chamber's regular monthly meeting.
"The projects in this bond are needed, responsible and affordable," Kobza said. "They both address the immediate critical needs and lay the ground for responsible growth into the future."
The bond that voters will decide this fall includes a large, new elementary school for grades one through five, a new technical education center, additions to Eudora Middle School and Eudora High School, renovations to West Elementary and a new district athletic facility. All of the projects in the $45 million proposal are included in a package that requires no increase to the total mill rate the district charges to taxpayers.
