They've still yet to answer the question of how they're going to pay for ongoing maintenance. I suspect in three years they'll be asking for another millage to pay for upkeep.

RE "They've still yet to answer the question of how they're going to pay for ongoing maintenance."
There will be some savings on maintenance of the single high school once it is no longer overcrowded. The question is a strawman anyway, as ongoing operating costs would be an issue with any increase in square footage, which is a need acknowledged by opponents as well as supporters of the millage. Further, the increase in operation and maintenance expense would be greater with "tempory" buildings than with a new high school, for various reasons.
