Estimate to fix old gym: $883,000
If you are wondering if the school board will decide to re-roof and re-side the old Lake Roosevelt High School gym, you will have to wait a little longer.
Superintendent Dennis Carlson revealed to the board last Wednesday night that it will take about $883,000 to do just that.
Carlson told the board that dressing up the old gym so it will look like the new facility will have to wait until the district knows if it has enough in its contingency fund to do the job.
Carlson had been asked by the board to price the job out so it could make a decision as soon as possible.
The old gym has serious problems with its roof ($569,568) and with soffits ($23,498) and siding ($203,311).
Currently the new school facility is on target to be finished by the first day of school this fall, Sept. 15.
Where the district will be on its contingency fund (money held in reserve to deal with the unforeseen) is still in question.
