Plans for Lubbock Cooper ISD's 2006 bond proposal are underway. The $34 million bond is the largest in the district's history.
For about three years now, Cooper ISD has had a problem of excessive flouride in their water supply. Officials implemented a short term solution, by serving bottled water and flouride free lunches. Now, the district plans to spend an estimated $1.5 million on a pipeline project that would allow them to buy water from the City of Lubbock.
"One way or another, we'll be constructing at the district's expense a pipeline to bring that water to Woodrow," said Lubbock-Cooper ISD Superintendent, Pat Henderson.
Details of the project will be revealed at the public hearing. In addition, the bond proposal also includes: another elementary school building, a class addition to Lubbock Cooper South Elementary, a performing arts center and an athletic facility.
The public hearing will take place Thursday night at 7 p.m. at Lubbock Cooper High School. For more information, please call Superintendent Pat Henderson at (806) 863-2282.
