Austintown school district has town hall meeting

AUSTINTOWN — If Vincent Colaluca and the Austintown school board haven’t answered questions about the upcoming bond issue, it hasn’t been for a lack of trying.

Colaluca stood patiently behind a table at a special town hall meeting to answer any questions and discuss community input on the bond issue this evening at Tabernacle Evangelical Presbyterian Church on Raccoon Road. In front of him was the conceptual model for the new buildings and not much else.

Only a handful of people attended the meeting, which was designed to explain a 2.9-mill bond issue that will be placed on the ballot next month. If passed, the money collected would fund the local 53 percent share, or roughly $26 million, of a $50 million expansion project. The state would fund the remaining 47 percent.
