Petition battle set to begin

A group of 100 homeowners and voters have challenged a plan to add a wing for prekindergarten through second grade at Indian Creek Intermediate School.

Beginning Aug. 28, supporters and opponents of the project can pick up envelopes from the county’s election office in Franklin and start gathering signatures of Indian Creek residents who either own property or are registered voters. The signature race will last 30 days, until Sept. 26, deputy clerk Reagan Higdon said.

If those in favor of the project collect more signatures, then the school district can move forward with the project, modifying architectural plans and seeking bids from contractors. If the opponents collect more signatures, then the district cannot continue making plans for the new wing, Superintendent Tim Edsell said.
