The first Lake Central school referendum was fair and clearly rejected by the taxpayers. The second referendum unfair, too close to the first one, and school resources used against taxpayers. The icing on the cake was when the Lake Central school administration held the event to show all the other local school districts how to ramrod it through, no press allowed.
The plan is to build gym and sports complex first, the academic buildings later. The plan is to go back to either get more money because of cost overruns or postpone the important part of the school.
Larry Blanchard wrote in The Times that all taxpayers in Lake County are held accountable for school districts and taxing districts that spend more money than they take in. This Lake Central project is being overseen by people who used unethical means to get this project and have planned it badly. Fire and replace all of them.
