Tonawanda News — “We are sending the final drawings in early August, and expect a week or two wait before receiving approval,” Brian Brady, of Wendel, said.
Work will then begin in the fall and may last until April and will be the last phase of the nearly $12 million project.
The repair of the Riverview Elementary roof is also on budget, Newton said, much to the relief of district officials. Last year, during repairs to the Mullen Elementary roof, workers discovered that the roof was in complete disrepair. Contractors ended up replacing the roof, and the project came in at $170,000 over budget.
“The roof at Riverview is in pretty good shape, and we are on schedule there financially,” Newton said.
The district is also in the process of obtaining estimates for technology upgrades as part of the capital project, including wiring for safety access cards to the schools, security cameras and the improvement of the telephone system.
