Building Projects Update
 
February 2014
 
The board approved bids to move forward on the Storm Shelter/ Gymnasium at a Special Board Meeting on Wednesday, January 29. Demolition and Construction will be starting on February 10, with some demolition beginning immediately. After accepting a list of value engineering items on the project, it came in within budget with an estimated amount of $50,000 left to complete work on the old middle school gym to create a larger weight room. The storm shelter area of the school campus will become a construction zone and be closed off to all patrons and school personnel.

The Community Building remodel is well under way and will be completed prior to track meets and the city’s Smoke in the Spring BBQ Contest. 

The Community Building improvements involve constructing new restrooms and concessions areas within the confines of the existing building. A covered patio the length of the building on the south will provide seating area outside the building. The building will also get a fresh coat of paint and new windows.
