County needs to get behind new school

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

The man in charge of making plans for the new Williston Middle/High School surprised the Levy County Commission with the mention of the possible price tag for the 1,000 student facility: $50 million.

One reason the price was so surprising is that the cost to build the 400-student Bronson Middle/High School in 2007 was about $16 million. “I just saw one like this with 6-12th grades and it was $50 million,” said Jeff Edison, director of administration for the Levy County School Board.

Edison said the school board used a 1.5 mill utility tax to raise $6 million for the Bronson construction with the state Public Education Capital Outlay fund paying for the rest. He said the school board hopes to do the same for the new Williston school.
