Hall superintendent describes next steps in building a new school

Posted by wlpo on April 24, 2013

It was a long two weeks if you were waiting to get the final vote total for the Hall High School Referendum.  The election was April 9 but because of absentee ballots, the referendum to build a new school couldn’t have been determined until Tuesday afternoon.

School superintendent Mike Struna says there will be a special school board meeting May 7 to canvass the votes and probably accept the referendum which passed by only three votes.

Struna acknowledges that the vote was close so he wants to make sure they build a school within the budget that of which all Hall Township can be proud.

Architects with Healy, Bender and Associates have already started to draw out classrooms and spaces in the building and will be at the May 7 meeting to talk about the difference between general contractors and construction managers.

Struna says they must wait 30 days before the bonds can be issued.  They want to the new school to be ready in August 2015.  It’s estimated to cost $32 million.  Hear more during an interview up at the AM 1220 WLPO news page.
