What's the halt in District 93 bond?

Whats the halt in the bond

BONNEVILLE COUNTY, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - The Bonneville School District 93 board held a work session today to discuss new ideas, and possibilities of a bond, there was still no outcome. But what stands in the way of making a final decision?

"We have 5 very strong willed people on the board and 5 different ideas, said Paul Jenkins, Chairman of the Board.

For the past 18 months, D93 board members have been debating back and forth on which bond option they want to go forward with.

"Many, many, many board meetings, work sessions, regular sessions," Jenkins said. "Where this has been the primary topic."

And today's meeting still had little traction. It's not been an easy decision to make, considering all that's needed.

"We are a growing district and it's our responsibility as a board to take," Jenkins said. "Not only the fiscal responsibility but also to make sure that the children have the proper education."

And it hasn't been easy dealing with clashing viewpoints. 

"I think part of the reason we haven't come to a conclusion is because just differences of opinion of what is actually best for the students," said Jenkins."

Those clashing stances have gone on for a year and half which make things... well, frustrating at times.

The board was able to come up with a plan today to put together two proposals, that will appear at the next board meeting. If they get a majority vote, they hope to have the bond appear in the March election.
