Bond issue for new Crestview school building on November ballot

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIANA COUNTY, Ohio -

Crestview Local School officials say if approved by voters, the district will build a new Pre-K through 12 school building.

The school board approved a resolution on Wednesday night to put a bond issue on the November ballot.

If it passes, the bond would generate 5.2 million dollars, which is what Crestview needs for the 42 million dollar project.

The school board says this was the best option.

They say it will save taxpayers millions that the district currently needs repairs.

School officials say one of the most pressing issues is heat.

"Our students bring blankets in the winter. The building uses heating coils and not a ductwork system, those are no longer made. So we have two rooms that are completely gone, we have to put a home heating system in those rooms. Eventually, from the outside assessments we've had done, we're going to end up with 88 separate heating systems," says Superintendent Matthew Manley.

Manley says the roof is such a problem that they had to evacuate twice because of roof leaks.

He added the elevator at the elementary school has never worked.
