USD 466 projects near completion, police chief resigns, BBN is nation’s best

As with any year, 2019 provided many memories and accomplishments for Scott City.

The top newsmakers include:

USD Building Projects

As 2019 drew to a close, two-years of construction and renovation on USD 466 facilities were finally nearing conclusion.

The $25 million bond issue that was narrowly approved by voters in 2017 experienced construction delays at Scott City Middle School because of an unusual amount of snowfall last winter. Consequently, students in grades 3-5 were unable to move into the renovated east wing until the start of the second semester during the 2019-20 school year.

In addition, the new competition gym - which is part of the SCMS Activity Center - won’t see its first high school basketball action until January 7.

Construction of the new west wing at SCMS, along with new tennis courts, was completed in time for the start of school last fall.
