Private school to get tax-exempt bonds

November 09, 1999

Following a public hearing Tuesday, the Washington County Commissioners passed a resolution to issue up to $5 million in tax-exempt bonds for Saint James School.

The vote was 3-0 with Commissioners John L. Schnebly and William J. Wivell absent because they were out of town.

The County Commissioners voted Oct. 12 to issue bonds but had to hold a public hearing before making their decision official. Nobody spoke at Tuesday's public hearing.

The county will have no liability or face any other possible repercussions because of the action, bond counsel Timmy Ruppersberger said.

The private school in Saint James would use the money to renovate the dining room, kitchen fitness center and science labs, build a new dormitory and meet campus housing needs, Ruppersberger said.

The school has about 211 students and 29 faculty members.
