Trustees discuss future projects, renew contracts

The Yorktown Independent School District Board of Trustees may embark on a new but familiar venture as they consider and discuss aspects of future construction projects with Singleton, Zimmer & Halliburton Architects.

The board held their regular meeting Feb. 16 in the Junior High School Library.

Wade Zimmer discussed three proposals ranging anywhere from $4.8 to $9.8 million. The proposals for consideration are from remodelling existing buildings, additions to existing buildings, or to build a new facility and demo the elementary building. One of the key considerations is an effort to reduce heavy traffic around the campus.

Board president Mark Weischwill said, “There is a lot to discuss and decide on. We need to be good stewards.”
