Prescott Police Commission meets this evening

For just the second time this year but also for the second time in two months, the Prescott Police Commission will meet this evening at 6:30 p.m. at the city building on Borner St., 800 North.

On the commission's agenda will be a report on the state of the Prescott PD by Interim Police Chief Rob Funk, discussion of "limited-term positions" and then a closed session which will deal with the potential hiring of an officer.

The meeting will return to open session at which time the commission may take action on anything discussed in closed session.

Prescott School District energy efficiency project moves forward

The energy efficiency project for the two Malone schools in the Prescott School District has been finalized after the Prescott School Board unanimously voted to authorize the general obligation bonds of $3,785,000 to pay for the project during its monthly meeting last evening at the Prescott High School library.

The low bid for the bonds was offered by UMB Bank of Chicago at an interest rate of 2.37 percent over a 15-year loan. The district reportedly saved some $30,000 in interest payments as the result of its bond rating being upgrade by Moody's Investment Services yesterday.

The total coast of the project with interest included is $4,578,115.28 to be paid off by 2032.
