Option one or option two? That's the question for many Ozark residents on which plan to give the go ahead for the new Carroll High School.
Michael Lenhart, the Superintendent of Ozark City Schools, says, "One of those options is to relocate the high school out near Highway 231 and the other one is to rebuild it right where it currently sits."
Lenhart and other city officials gathered with residents discussing two proposed sites for the new school.
Lenhart says, "Our purpose here tonight is to let the public see what we've been doing, what we've been up to and to bring them up to date so they stay with us in every step of the process."
Darlene Helms is an employee at Carroll High School and says she favors both plans, whether the new building call the current location home or on Highway 231.
Helms says, "I like the new site for some reasons for the location, you can get to it better from people, just to know where the locations at but the old site it’s been there for so long and everybody in the area, that's Carroll High School and that's where we want to go to school, so some people are leaning that way but I'm good either way, just as long as we get a new high school."
If you missed Thursday night's meeting another will be held Friday night at the Perry Recreation Center in Ozark.
