Willmar School Board meets today

WILLMAR -- The Willmar School Board will meet at 4:30 p.m. today in the board room on the first floor of the Willmar Education and Arts Center.

The board will listen to public comments related to items on the agenda at the beginning of the meeting. Those who want to comment on issues that are not on today's agenda may do so at the end of the meeting.

The board will consider raising school meal prices by 5 cents.

The board will also look at a proposal to build a driveway from 15th Street Southwest to Roosevelt Elementary School and a parking lot bus area north of the school.

The estimated cost of the construction is $373,000. The school district would use its capital outlay fund, which is designated for such uses. The city of Willmar will finish the project, and the school district will pay for it over 10 years.

Board meetings are shown live on Willmar local cable access channel 18. The meeting is recorded and shown Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday on channel 19.
