Osage City Elementary School teacher Collene Stucky leads USD 420 residents on a tour of the problems that need addressed at the school. Updates and additions to the elementary school are one of the major parts of a $6.8 million bond, which will go to voters April 3.

OSAGE CITY—The Building for the Future committee held its first public meeting Feb. 26 in the Osage City High School auditorium to discuss issues related to a $6,772,500 bond issue. The issue will be decided in a special election April 3.

Committee co-chairs Casey Mussatto and Bobbi Pearson opened with a statement of goals and quick example of cost before addressing specifics of the project.

“On the financial side, it’s $2.12 per month for a $75,000 home,” Mussatto said. “We’re going to talk a lot of about how a unique financial situation available to us makes that possible.”

Pearson followed up with the mission statement of the group, “to expound the proposed bond issue so that each community member can make an informed decision.”
