County Approves Money For Crofton School

From the Capital-Gazette:
The Anne Arundel County Council on Monday approved money for a new high school in Crofton, further signifying that a years-long battle to build the school may be coming to a close.
The $500,000 approved by the council would be used to fund a design plan for the school, a signal to the state that the county wants to move forward with the project, supporters said. County officials worry that waiting until the fiscal year begins in July would delay state funding.
The county and state would share the cost of building the Crofton school, which was ranked sixth in a recent school study that listed projects from highest to lowest priority.
The legislation passed 6 to 1, with Councilman Michael Peroutka, R-Millersville, voting against it.
Jonathan Boniface, who leads the Build Crofton High School group, called the vote a victory for the effort to build the school. The money shows that the county is serious about funding the project, he said.
