Board votes for HTMS lunchroom renovation
By Gary Lloyd
TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville City Board of Education on Monday approved the renovation of the lunchroom of Hewitt-Trussville Middle School.
The estimated cost of the project is $350,000.
The project will include the installation of new serving lines, and additional office space for the manager and assistant manager. The new serving lines will replace the original serving lines, and will improve the flow and efficiency of the student traffic during serving times.
Lathan and Associates is doing the design and engineering of the project. The renovation will likely take place next year.
The board also approved of spending $125,000 public school funds to remove the mulch and replace it with a poured rubber surface on the Paine Primary School playground. Sprouse Construction was the low bidder at $125,000. Lathan and Associates did the design and engineering.
In other action, the board approved two amendments with EEFS for Hewitt-Trussville Stadium and Sports Complex. The first updates the contract showing the correct contract amount to reflect the correct percentage of payment for the design firm. The other amendment reflects a credit for engineering work that the city had already paid for.
School officials also discussed the possibility of expanding the parking lot at Hewitt-Trussville High School. About 300 parking spaces could be added in the upper left area of the student parking lot.
