When will school be built?

When is the Sikeston school system going to start building the new school that we passed the bond issue for a year ago? Just curious about our tax payer dollars. Thank you.

According to the construction timeline under the “Wing Elementary Updates” link via the Sikeston R-6 School District website, the district is currently in the building bid phase, which is expected to be completed April 26. The following is the timeline in its entirety: review 50 percent of the construction document between Jan. 31 and Feb. 5; 100 percent of the construction document completed, stamped and signed on March 19; building bid phase from March 19-April 26; construction phase from April 26 through July 1, 2019; and move-in between July 1, 2019, and Aug. 15, 2019.

What are you, Mike?

Mike, it is getting very hard after reading your last article to determine whether you are a conservative or a bleeding heart liberal.

Obviously a bleeding heart liberal. Welfare for everyone!
