…It’ll never end.

I assume the Guilford County Board of Education thinks it’s doing the public a favor by letting them know up front the delay in getting the school bond on the ballot will jack the price up another $15 million due to – you guessed it – rising construction costs.

This is getting old, man. Instead of the constant moaning and groaning, you’d think the board would do something about it. E.C. Huey says as much:

Here are my thoughts…if we spend less on facilities, the bond won’t be as expensive. We can build schools for $20 or $30 million like they do in Forsyth County; we don’t have to build $80, $90, and $100 million schools. A novel concept…spend less upfront, save more in the long run. This is a no-brainer, folks. And the other scary thing is that this bond is coming right at budget time. So if it doesn’t pass next May, budget discussions instantly get longer.

Better watch your wallets. There’s got to be a better way.
