Ozark voters determines high school's future April 27th

OZARK, Al (AP) - Students at Carroll High School often complain about the condition of the school's 57-year-old building. They complain about the flooding in the main hallway and about sewage backup in the cafeteria. Then there's the problems handicapped students have accessing some areas.

Voters in Ozark will go to the polls on April 27 to 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.
