HAMILTON – A healthy education budget has freed Marion County School officials to seek new sets of bleachers for two schools.
The Marion County Board of Education voted unanimously during its monthly meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 22, to seek bids on new bleachers for both Brilliant High School and Phillips High School gyms.
Marion County Superintendent of Education Ann West told the board that new bleachers were a line item included on a recent heating and air conditioning upgrade for Phillips, which cost $350,000.
The bleachers were removed from the project, however, after revelations that they would cost $85,000.
