Summer Renovations In the Works for North Middle School

North Middle School will be getting some much needed renovations this summer, reports the Rapid City Journal.

Natural water flows and poor drainage have been eroding the soil beneath the school, causing sinking and interior structural damage.  The $1.1 million construction project should be completed this summer and will shore up the foundation and render the building safe for occupation.  Other schools are scheduled for renovations this summer as well, totaling $5 million, paid out of the capital outlay reserve fund.

Discussions are ongoing about how to address the improvement projects outlined by MGT of America, a consulting firm that delivered a report to the school board in February.  The direction that has been given to the facilities manager is to use current funds for small projects and maintenance rather than new buildings.
