[ARCHIVED] Executive Gardner Addresses School Construction Funding Obstacles

“I have always been passionate about school overcrowding and we are facing serious challenges in this area. What we are seeing is a perfect storm of skyrocketing school construction costs, fed by market conditions, state mandates and more,” Executive Gardner said.

“In addition, a plan was put in place by the prior administration that allowed residential development to continue no matter how overcrowded the schools, and without the needed money to build the schools.”
