MCW Board votes to close Welcome school building

Wed 6-24-2020

A very split Martin County West School Board voted 4-3 Tuesday Night to close the Welcome School Building.  Board members voting in favor of closing the building were Michele Anderson, Ryan Baker, Steve Olson and Wendi Russenberger.  Voting against were Laura Borchardt, Sarah Rohman and Kent Janssen.

Two proposed amendments to the resolution, one moving the closing date to June 30, 2021 and the second moving it to the end of March 2021 were defeated by the same 4-3 votes.
