It's a great time to invest in school infrastructure while contractors are fighting for the work.

That said, I'd hardly call painting and repairing walls an expensive upgrade. Looks like the county is simply taking decent care of the properties it looks after.

More tax money down the drain! Will kids really be that much smarter if we spend 100s of thousands on fancy paint?

Just keep the county administrator out of it since she over spends on everything. And how long is the $75 dump tax going to last?

Perhaps not. You, however, will be better off if the schools spend money each year maintaining the building, rather than presenting the tax payers with a bill for $millions because an entire dilapidated building needs replaced.

Where did the money for the new sidewalks on main street come from? That money would have been better spent on the schools!

The High school was not in the best of shape when i attended in 1988 but when i walk in it now i am really disappointed that out of all the tax money that madison gets, more has not been put towards improving this school. My parents attended this school - i attended this school and my children are and will attend this school - they along with their other classmates deserve a better learning enviroment. The county should use the money appropriatley and not put it in the big wigs pockets.
