It should be the vote of the public. Legal or not – it sounds like it was a way to get the buildings constructed without the red tape and time it would take doing it the right way. I am very upset that you can build a school and pass the infrastructure that the are needs for the area when it is done. Really all the costs get passed on to the tax payers. Taxes, Specials and more. It needs to be a public vote!!

Yes, the TAXPAYERS, who are the ones that ultimately pay the bills, no matter which way funding is directed, should be able to vote on these boondoggles that somebody has decided to build with other peoples money.
Poor planning is an understatement — wait until the first good ole ND blizzard hits and there are a 1000 of Fargo’s young people 2 miles out into the country. Can you say 19th Avenue, all over again?? One will clearly be able to place blame on the school board who came up with this plan.
Same as all elected officials — those that show lack of responsibility should be voted out at the nearest opportunity.

So they have cash burning a hole in their pocket. How about paying it back to the taxpayers or reducing the mill levy? Oh no, let’s build an unecessary school in the middle of nowhere and stick the nearby residents with a boatload of specials. This is the typical lunatic attitude of government bureacrats who feel that tax money is their money to do as they please.

Good luck with the propsal. It’s long overdue. Just put it on a city ballot and let the public vote again. Only this time, study the language so no one can violate the public trust again like the school board has been doing for the past decade or more.
