HARTINGTON — Another attempt will be made to seek approval for the construction of an auditorium in School District R-1 (Obert-Maskell).
A special election will be held at the Obert City Hall April 23 to vote on a proposal to issue bonds of School District R-1 in the amount of $49,000 to build an auditorium.
The proposal also asks that the school district levy and collect a tax to pay the interest and principal of the bonds.
Twice last year voters in District R-1 turned down proposals for construction of an auditorium. The Kelbert School District was formed in 1954 when the former Obert and Maskell School Districts merged.
