Major renovation project is proposed at high school

January 31, 2012

A major renovation project has been proposed for Kane Area High School.
The net project cost is estimated at nearly $7.9 million and would require a "net annual local effort" of $233,000 over  the next 20 years. The estimated millage increase required for the project is 1.44 mills.
"We're going to pursue our options to see if we can afford it," long-time school board member Ken Kane said Tuesday evening following a meeting of the board's Operations/Finance Committee. "It's something we've got to look at."
