Voters to decide on tax hike to build new school

OZARK, Ala. (AP) - Students at Carroll High School are complaining about the condition of the school's 57-year-old building.

Students complain about flooding in the main hallway and sewage backup in the cafeteria. In addition to these issues, handicapped students have problems accessing some areas.

On April 27, Ozark voters will go to the polls. They will decide if they want a 10-mill property tax increase to fund a $20 million to $24 million bond issue for a new high school.

A vote on a property tax increase to fund capital improvements in the system failed in 2004.

City schools superintendent Mike Lenhart told The Dothan Eagle the school has electrical problems that cause power surges and air conditioners and boilers need replacing in all the district's schools.
