ROTHSAY, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- A packed house at the Rothsay School Board meeting last night as about 75 people turned out to protest a bond issue for a new school.
Voters approved the new $20 million dollar K-thru-12 school last May.
Many of the protesters were farmers who live outside of the Rothsay School District but own land in the district and say they will foot most of the tax bill.
Despite the protest, the school board approved the sale of bonds for the project.
School leaders say it's more cost effective to build a new school rather than bringing the more than 100 year old building up to code.
