The petitions must be signed by at least 50 voters which according to the applicable statute represents the minimum i per cent of the districts eligible voters who cast votes in the last gubernatorial election.

Final annual meetings at which the presentation of final annual reports will be about the Only business will be tuesday june 28, for the Village District and thursday june 30, for the Rural District. After weighing the pros and cons of including the Bond Issue proposal on the new elementary school along with other business at the merged districts annual meeting the joint Board decided to table its decision until its meeting May 18. Among other things the Board weighed the fact that the new District will be electing its new Board of directors and that of the Bond Issue were approved at that same meeting this would mean the new Board would simply be handed the approved proposal and be expected to see to the new schools construction. Some feeling was expressed that the Bond Issue vote should come sometime after the annual meeting which would allow this new Board to have some say in the final preliminary plans for the proposed school and in the presentation of the Bond Issue proposal to voters. Weighed against this was the additional delay this would mean in going ahead with the school in what the Board indicated was an increasingly tight situation As far As the adequacy of existing facilities. Bearing on the final agreement to put off a decision on the Date for a Bond Issue vote to the May 18 meeting was another related decision to form a citizens committee to help the Board in a Public information program on the proposed new school. The Board agreed to form at least a nucleus of the citizens committee immediately and have this group present at the May 18 meeting to take part on the Bond vote Date decision As Well As to get in on the wrap up of plans being developed for the new school. The Board following the advice of Clark will also select in the near future an agent to handle the actual issuing of the Bonds at such time As they Are authorized by voters. While there were several comments that the first National Bank of Boston could probably Best serve the District in this capacity because of its previous bonding experience with other Bennington area Public building projects the Board agreed with the advice of supt. Howard f. Kelley to get quotations on this service from other banking institutions before making a final decision. Kelley indicated that there can be considerable variation in the costs cited for such a service.
