For such a nice guy, Mr. Terstegge sure seems to have a lot of people interested in his life and scrutinizing his every move. Seems like people who have no involvement in this and little if any direct knowledge of the issue would be better served by minding their own business.

Options abound for QPS buildings and how to pay for them

First of two meetings held Wednesday night

About 40 people turned out for the first of two meetings regarding the Quincy Public Schools possible spending between $70 million and $80 million on new and refurbished schools.

Business Manager Joel Murphy laid out multiple options to build new elementary schools, renovate others and add enough space to Quincy High School to accommodate moving freshmen to the campus.

Murphy also discussed funding options, both of which would have to go to the voters.

One option would be a permanent county wide sales tax for new facilites that would generate an estimated $4.7 million annually. The other would be geared toward property tax increases, although Murphy says because other bonding will be paid off within six years, the rate will not increase significantly from the current rate.

There are different options including doing the project in two phases or knocking it all out at once.

Plan 1 would cost $75.4 million for three new K-5 schools, renovations to Washington, Adams and Baldwin and moving 9th grade to Quincy High School.

Plan 2 is K-6, 7-9, 10-12 alignment with three new schools and renovations to Adams, Washington and Baldwin.

 Plan 3 is K-5, 6-8, 9-12 schools with four new schools with a cost of $81.7 million.

Construction would take three construction seasons.

Murphy said the School District will save more than $1 million annually in reduced administrative, maintenance and transportation costs.

Murphy will offer another presentation Thursday night. The School Board will hold a special meeting on December 10 and then vote whether to put the issue on the March 2014 ballot at its meeting on December 18.
