Now that tens of millions of taxpayer dollars have been poured into upgrades of Lincoln Parish school buildings over the past few years, it was only a matter of time before construction of a shiny new Central Office building got put on the district’s capital outlay plan.
See here the plan.
Superintendent Mike Milstead said that the existing building was built in the 1950’s, and that it wasn’t feasible to keep spending money on upkeep of a building that old.
No location has been decided upon, Milstead said.
“I’ve been in conversation already with the mayor, with the police jury about properties, and how we can do that as I’ve explained to you (board members) in our individual conversations,” he said.
In other money matters, the decline in sales tax revenues continues, according to Business Manager George Murphy.

The board also adopted the recommendations for the employee health plan.
