Progress is looking good Monday night for the upcoming construction of a new elementary school in Elida.

Monday evening, Elida School Board officials approved a resolution to participate in the Ohio Facilities Assistance program. This gets the state to fund a chunk of change for the build. Last month, voters approved the 2.8 mill bond issue, that will pay for half of the $36 million building project, with the state picking up a large part of that.

"This is part of the nuts and bolts steps, this is the preliminary work to get the money from the state, to get our $18.1 million," said Elida School Board member Pat Schymanski. "This is more like dotting the I's, all the things pre-things you have to do to tell the state we are ready and we are committed."
