ROYERSFORD PA – Spring-Ford Area school board members are arguing among themselves, ahead of a scheduled town hall meeting, over exactly how much the district intends to tell the public its proposed high school expansion project will cost, The (Pottstown PA) Mercury newspaper indicated.
Mercury Writer Eric Devlin reported that during its Monday (March 20) meeting board President Joe Ciresi, Vice President Tom DiBello, and director Mark Dehnert squabbled over whether a suggested price range of $7-$10 million, or of $10-$15 million, accurately portrayed the price of enlarging the physical education and performing arts portions of the high school at 350 S. Lewis Rd.
Ciresi and DiBello claim the board has pledged to limit the expense to $10 million or less, Devlin’s article said. Dehnert suggested final decisions on price limits haven’t been set in stone, and the full extent of cost-related options should be presented at the town hall. It is scheduled for Thursday (March 23) from 7-9 p.m. in the high school auditorium, is free to attend, and open to the public.
