BPS board considers refinancing school bonds

The board had one action item and that was to consider refinancing the school bonds to save the district 395K over the next 19 years. The board approved this possibility if the rate continues to hover around 2%. Currently the district is getting 3%.

Tennis Court Project underway

Tennis Court Project underway

Colorado company Renner Sport Surface has been busy for the better part of two weeks in Bridgeport at the old, dilapidated tennis courts. Some time ago, the old courts’ flooring had been torn up and pieced apart to whomever wanted to drag it away. The tennis courts then sat empty and unusable for years and had become quite an eye sore to the public. With generous community donations and two local grants obtained by the City of Bridgeport for this project late this summer, the city council gave the go-ahead for the rehabilitation project to proceed.
