Liberty-Benton Building Levy Passes

The Liberty-Benton school district is building a new facility for pre-kindergarten through eighth-grade. With May’s vote, with 66 percent in favor of the levy, district voters approved a 35-year property tax that includes 6.8 mills for construction and another half-mill for continued maintenance of the new building. The construction will include renovations at the high school and a new auditorium. Superintendent Mark Kowalski says communication was the key to passing the issue this time around. With no start date yet for beginning of construction, Kowalski believes the planning process for the new building will begin in the early fall. Kowalski shared, “There will be opportunities in the coming months to provide feedback and stay engaged in this process and we hope to continue to partner with our community on this exciting new phase of the journey.”
