Eastwood delays community meeting, will choose new date
PEMBERVILLE - The Eastwood Board of Education is postponing its Town Hall meeting on facilities that had been scheduled for Wednesday/
This will also necessitate a delay on the phone survey which had been planned for later this month.
The meeting has been delayed because there were options discussed at a combined Facilities Task Force and Business Advisory Council meeting that need to be explored to see if they are financially or physically viable.
At this point administrators are looking to mid-October for a forum with a survey coming out shortly thereafter.
