Brownstown Central school officials continue to narrow the focus of multimillion dollar building projects involving the corporation’s three school buildings.
“It was about $27 million when we started,” Superintendent Roger Bane said of the proposed work, which includes the addition of as many as six classrooms at the elementary school. The project would also see a facelift of the high school, which was built in the early 1960s.
Bane said the corporation could have used the $27 million, but the scope of the work has since been cut to closer to $20 million, Bane said.
“And there will probably be more cuts,” he said.
Trustees will receive an update on the proposed work from Hal Kovert with Kovert-Hawkins Architects during their monthly meeting at 7:30 p.m. Monday at the administration building. Bane said the final scope of the project, to be paid for with bonds, is set to be finalized at the Oct. 9 board meeting.
