Officials to Meet to Discuss School Consolidation  

The details effecting the school consolidation of Aubbeenaubee township in Fulton county, Union township in Marshall county and North Bend township in Stark county will be discussed at a meeting to be held here in Culver on Thursday, Dec 27 at the State Exchange Bank Lounge at 7:30 p.m.

The consolidation has been approved by the by the State School Reorganization committee, which is believed to be the final step in forming the unit under the Acts of 1947.

The corporation was formed in early 1960 by menders of the three townships with plans for the tri-township high school to be at Culver. There were o objections at that time.

The state committee,, however, would not approve the plan and ruled that the commission would not approve school corporations which had been formed across county lines, without the approval of each county committee involved. The three County committees did not give their approval at that time.

The announcement made by the commission had approved the consolidation without the Approval of the county committees involved, apparently gave the go-sign on the original Proposed plan and application.

During the November general election, citizens of the proposed Marston United School Corporation, which took in Argos, Culver and Aubbeenaubee townships voted against the Plan 3,136 to 548.

Petitions were circulated in North Bend township earlier this year asking that North Bend be released from the Starke county school committee in order to join the Culver-Aubbeenaubee proposed plan. Stark county committee refused to release the North Bend township on a technicality of manes with drawn from the petitions.
