Mineral Springs School Construction Update

Although behind schedule, Mineral Springs School District officials and others associated with the school building construction project report that things are going well. An unusually wet summer has put the project behind schedule, but planning continues and walls are starting to go up as concrete and pads are poured. Curtis Turner reported to the board Monday evening that only a third of the slab has been poured. He also reported that spending is on target. So far a total of $2,979,910 has been expended on the project. School Board members questioned Turner, Construction Manager Lodi Dixon and Architect Craig Boone about how technology would be implemented and if the fire alarm system would interface with other buildings. Diamond Bank has donated funds for a scoreboard and clocks inside the gymnasium.
