City officials on Thursday voiced support for the school district’s proposed $49.6 million bond measure to fix aging classrooms.
The topic came up at the City Council/School Board Liaison Committee’s quarterly meeting at the Benicia Community Center.
“I think obviously this is important to the whole community and important to the city (government), too,” City Manager Brad Kilger said.
Kilger told Benicia Unified School District Superintendent Janice Adams he’d like the city to look into partnering with the district — if possible — to help the measure succeed. Councilman Mark Hughes, who supports the bond measure, asked how the district is going to reach out to voters who may be skeptical of approving a tax on themselves.
