Mayor’s Meeting to host Batesville Schools superintendent for discussion on district plans; White River Now to stream live on Facebook


Batesville Mayor Rick Elumbaugh will host his Mayor’s Community Meeting Thursday, Nov. 7, at the Best Dam Steakhouse, 50 Riverbank Rd. in Batesville.

The guest speaker will be Batesville School District Superintendent Dr. Michael Hester who will discuss the series of proposed plans focused on the district’s future.

School patrons and registered voters are invited to review the plans and then take a survey prepared by the district. To read the proposed plans and to take the survey, click here.

“By taking the survey, the school will have a better idea about what options patrons would like to see in the plan to secure the school’s future,” said Dr. Hester.

Hester says the school will use the input to make recommendations to the Batesville School Board and will have the final plan ready for the Spring 2020 ballot. The plan, according to the superintendent, will need to be financed with a bond paid off by a tax on personal property and real estate.

The meeting is scheduled to be streamed live on White River Now’s Facebook page. It will begin at 5 p.m.
