School board members were all smiles Monday evening after hearing the geo-tech report concerning land at Kentucky and Monroe streets, targeted as the site of a new elementary school.

Going into the meeting, the board knew the west part of the land could not support a building, so they decided to put a parking lot in that spot. Still, concerns remained about land to the east, where the school likely would be built. 

That land is more than suitable, a report shows. In fact, the district can now apply funds they had reserved for digging up the site and building it back up, to put toward the building itself.
