After weeks of heated public meetings, the Juneau Assembly will consider Monday night whether to approve the school district's plan for a $62 million high school in the Mendenhall Valley. Although that's more expensive than the school that voters approved in 1999, supporters say it will cost local taxpayers less than they agreed to pay at that time. Opponents say taxpayers could save even more with a smaller school and still meet Juneau's needs.
