The park district received money from the will of the Minot High Alum. It was his wish to give half to the school district and half to the park district. It was a private gift from one man to both the park and school district. Please read that carefully.

Park district gets money that could go to schools? We r in dire need of school space; not parks. Just what i have maintained all thru this school issue. Vote no and make them stop the games. The state will pay if we demand it and the city/county stops buying frills instead of needs until we can afford frills.

The state is collecting billions in oil impact taxes and sales taxes. This money can be used for schools and should be used for schools in western nd where the impact of oil has caused the need for bigger or more schools. All they need to do is sign it over to the city. The state is criticised by many for dragging their feet on the needs of western cities--caused by the influx of people/traffic from oil and related businesses.

Why does state not do it? Against rules?

The state has not given money for building schools. I don't think ever but not sure. Would be nice as school districts wouldn't have to run bond issues - which are not fun. to say the least - for anyone.

Fema paid for 90% of it - the replacement figure of the old Ramstad. The school district received a loan to build it bigger than the old one and to pay for the land as Fema wouldn't pay to move the new school out of the flood plain. The city -county - state governments did not help with the building of the school. The grounds are being paid for by a half million donation from a Minot High Alum - class of 48. He passed away and left a million dollars that was divided by the school district and the park district. Quite a lovely gift.

I believe the school should have used the spell "grill" instead of "grille". But, these days, who knows.

I drove by it the other day, it was sweet. How was it bought? FEMA and state/county?
