Covington City Commissioners give bonds to Covington Latin school

By Dan Wells – bio | email

COVINGTON (FOX19) –  Covington Latin is growing and expanding in Northern Kentucky.

"This school that you see behind me was dedicated in 1941 and hasn't had updates since then," said Bill Banks, board of education chair for Covington Latin.

A new construction project will add 27,000 square feet to the Catholic high school, doubling its size.

Updates includes a new cafeteria/amphitheater, several classrooms and school wide air conditioning. 

"We've been talking about this addition for 20 years we have been actively planning it for six years and even with the economy the way that it is the time is now right for us to do it," said Banks.

Construction work could begin in September and is expected to take a little more than a year.

Tuesday night, Covington City Commissioners voted to give the project $5.4 million in bonds.

"There is no responsibility to government at all, we do industrial bonds for business all over town, it's just protection to let the public know that we stand behind these bonds and protects it (the project) from government," said Covington Mayor Dennis Bowman.

"We have already arranged with the bank, financing so we have the load but it needs to be approved by the city, the city itself needs to give the stamp of approval," said Banks
