Financial data was presented to the committee members present which gave the following information. The estimated actual valuation of the Algona school district is 521,500.000. The legal school debt limit of this is 5 percent or $1.075.000. The present outstanding debt is S317.000 leaving a possible bond debt expansion of S758.000. As presented by the architects, the Brvant addition would cost about $209.000 and the Luda Wai lace addition about $130,400. The prospo^ed new East Side school would cost about $104,300.
