St. Landry Board Seeks Approval For $10M Bond Issue
OPELOUSAS, LA (AP) — The St. Landry Parish School Board has voted to ask the State Bond Commission to approve $10 million in bonds to cover the costs of proposed capital improvement projects.
The Advocate’s Bobby Ardoin reports Superintendent Edward Brown said in an interview Thursday that $3.8 million of the proceeds from the bond issue will pay for a two-phase cafeteria and classroom project at Leonville Elementary.
The initial phase the board unanimously approved includes the new cafeteria and eight new classrooms at a maximum cost of $2.5 million. Project architect Donald D'Avy told the board 10 more classrooms are projected for inclusion in the second phase.
The remainder of the projects included in the bond issue will be discussed at a later date.
