On April 2nd, voters in Webb City will be asked to vote on a bond extending a current debt service levy. It's already in place, but would be continued for another 20 years. Administrators say it's a long process but it will be valuable to the Webb City students and community.
"We'll have a place where our kids can go and they don't have to duck and cover, or get under anything or be in a dark hallway. These have emergency back up generators and they can go into these structures and play basketball and do activities," said Dr. Anthony Rossetti, Webb City Superintendent.
The large storm shelter would hold over 3,000 people. In addition to the domed structure, 5 other safe rooms will be built at other Webb City schools as part of the proposal.
