The Strongsville School District will have this week for residents to offer input into building a new middle school and repairing other buildings.
The meetings are set for Tuesday, May 22 at and Wednesday, May 23 at . The sessions start at 7 p.m.
At the meetings, school officials give an overview of the physical problems at the schools -- everything from leaky roofs and pothole-filled parking lots to torn carpet and inefficient heating-cooling systems -- and talk about the idea of putting a bond issue on the ballot to build a new middle school and fix some of those problems.
Officials are trying to get a handle on how large of a bond issue voters might be willing to support -- a $72 million issue that would mean an $8-to-$16-a-year tax hike for the average homeowner, or a larger issue that would cost $80 more a year but would remedy all the problems.
