“It’s important to vote yes,” said Todd Cottle, chairman of the Friends of the Logan School District. He was speaking of the Logan School District’s bond and levy election coming up on November 5.
Cottle appeared Friday on KVNU’s Crosstalk show. He said the district is keeping taxes at a minimum while upgrading several buildings and increasing their safety, especially at Logan High School.
“People come and go and if you think about all the busing and the vehicles and the bicycles,” Cottle said, “and the walking that happens right in front of that school, something needs to happen so that we can control that, so we can separate it if we need to, so that we can divide it up and hopefully have it happening in different areas.
“There is safety inside the school as well. If you walk in the front doors of that building you walk into the auditorium.”
He said walking into Logan High it takes 100 to 150 feet before you see an administrator.
Cottle said the increased levy will address some of the needs left by the loss of state funding, especially in class size reduction, and restoration of programs such as elementary music.
