Gee said it’s the district’s hope to start the Lions Field work in mid-May and have at least the football area completed by the first week in August, weather permitting.
The school board’s vote Tuesday came more than five months after district residents passed an $18 million bond referendum.
The passage of the referendum gave the school district the authority to issue debt for construction and improvement projects at its elementary school, middle school and high school facilities.
Dean Snyder also received the bids for the Clear Creek Elementary secure entrance ($515,230) and the Lions Field Athletic Complex ($2.4 million) projects in March and April, respectively.
Both projects started this spring and are slated to be completed this fall.
