BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. (AP) – A citizen’s group plans to argue school district consolidation before the Bay St. Louis City Council next week. It’s a move they say will save the county millions of dollars.
The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/2cohPI6) Ron Thorp with the Hancock County Alliance for Good Government, a non-elected, political watchdog group, is spearheading a campaign to save taxpayer money by combining the Bay-Waveland and Hancock County school districts into one.
So far, Thorp has met with government and school officials throughout Hancock County.
He says consolidation is good for everyone, the students, teachers and taxpayers.
Thorp argues the county could save at least $6 to $10 million a year if the Bay-Waveland School District merged with the Hancock County School District.
