A special Region 9 Board of Education meeting is being held on Tuesday about a technical error that could delay the roof restoration project at Joel Barlow High School. The Redding Pilot reports that there was a problem with the public notification. The referendum date was set at a meeting four days after notice was given of the meeting, not five days as required.
The $1.4 million project would have started in late July, but could now be pushed back to August.
The Region 9 district could hold a Town Meeting to borrow some of the money for the project and hold a July 22nd referendum to authorize the balance. The other option is to hold a referendum on the same amount on July 22nd.
