FARMINGTON — Davis School Board President Gordon Eckersley said no matter what decision is made on proposed school boundary changes, some people will be disappointed.
“We hope that once it’s determined, and you can see that most people will benefit from what we choose to do, we do hope that you will support us in that,” he said in a public hearing Tuesday, Dec. 1.
Eckersley ended the meeting admitting he was concerned enough not to support the current proposal on its first reading. In spite of his “nay” vote, the motion did carry, but things are far from settled.
“In the next few weeks ahead there will still be room for discussion and change,” Eckersley said, stressing that boundary decisions are not set in stone by accepting a proposal on its first reading.
