ZCS board OKs high school additions

Other projects include tennis facility and PVE upgrade

Zionsville — The Zionsville Community Schools Board of Trustees, at its Monday, June 10 meeting, authorized Superintendent Scott Robison to move forward on capital projects totalling more than $15.2 million — with the stipulation that the projects don’t go over the proposed budget and that the board will have input throughout the process.

“These funds have been on the tax rolls since 2006,” Robison said.

They must be used within a certain time limit, and that deadline is fast approaching. Chief Financial Officer Mike Shafer said the projects will not add to the tax debt and will not increase taxes for Zionsville residents or add new taxes.

“In my opinion it’s the best move the board could make at this time,” Shafer said.

Robison said many people have worked many hours to whittle away  costs to maximize the corporation’s dollars. Of the total cost, $13.9 million is projected in construction costs, and $1.3 million in soft costs, such as equipment and fees.
