The Monticello CUSD #25 Board of Education heard a report prepared by BLDD Architects on estimated costs for 53 potential remodel projects and upgrades for all five district buildings. The report was requested by the Board after the referendum to build a new HS failed in November. The Board has tentatively scheduled a study session for June 11 at 6:00PM to further discuss the facility report.
The report can be accessed here --> Monticello Potential Projects Report 2015
