Citizens Bond Committee drills down on potential projects for future bond

Members of the Citizens Bond Committee (CBC) met April 24 at McNeil High School to begin their charge of examining potential projects to recommend to Board of Trustees for a future bond.  This is the fifth meeting of the CBC. The previous four led up to a recommendation to the Board of Trustees last week that a November Bond Election be considered.
