CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — The Allegany County commissioners have agreed to borrow $9.2 million for pay for construction of a new Allegany High School.
The commissioners unanimously approved the plan Thursday. The money will be raised by a general obligation bond.
The Cumberland Times-News reports that the county board of education will also contribute to the project, bringing the local share to $12.2 million.
The school, to be designed for 719 students, will be built atop Haystack Mountain.
