The current Monterey High School is nearly 60 years old. The building is very out dated, and has been posing a health risk for students for a very long time. The Putnam County School Board has plans to build a new Monterey High School, but this Commission refuses to act. Everyday that the building is open, it robs the citizens of Monterey a high school that their kids can go to, and to get a good education in a health environment. The building is ready to be built, the plans are drawn up, and all they need is funding from this commission to get the project going.
