East Allen County Schools officials will hold the final two-public meetings regarding the plan to redesign the district.

Superintendent Doctor Karyle Green will speak to residents in the last of a series of public meetings to outline a plan that calls for closing six-elementary schools and spending nearly $82 million to renovate five-other buildings.

Officials are trying to deal with major budget problems.

In this plan Green is relying on voters to approve a property tax hike in November.

The meetings will be held at Park Hill Learning Center at 4:00 and 6:00 this evening.
