By: Dan Foy

On Friday, nearly $695,000 was approved for spending on maintenance projects this summer by the ACSD school board. One of the largest projects will be near $236,000 for having the districts parking lot resurfaced. The overflow parking lot at LHS will be paved for a cost of nearly $195,000. Windows at ACSD’s special services building and the LHS football stadium press box will be replaced at a cost of nearly $188,000. Paintbrush and Spring Creek Elementary schools will be re carpeted with $100,000 of work already done over the last few years with nearly $47,000 worth of work to be completed this summer. Vinyl flooring will be added to concrete floors in LHS’s research and development labs at a cost of nearly $30,000.
