The Blue Ridge school district is anticipating a significant road project in front of Schneider School to be complete by the start of the new school year but it is already behind.
On the WHOW Morning Show Thursday morning, Superintendent Susan Wilson told Regional Radio News Farmer City is the coordinating point for it and they have informed her the construction group taking on the project is a few weeks behind on a project they are working on in town.
The street project is the highlight of the summer projects within the district, however, district offices are getting a renovation. Wilson explains this is something they are keeping in house and their staff is taking on a lot of the improvements.
Wilson says they are starting their upgrades to better energy efficiency and cutting down their electric bill at their Farmer City campus. She adds the city has offered them a discount for the next five years but work is underway.
There is a drainage project the district is working on for one of their parking lots and Wilson indicates that will solve some minor flooding issues at their Mansfield campus.
