Centralia High Board Issues Bonds For Football Stadium
Superintendent Chuck Lane was pleased that the district would be able to take advantage of lower-than-usual interest rates that were expected to rise later this year. The low rate of 2.8% will keep the tax rate for area residents stable through 2023.
In a meeting of the newly formed facilities committee, the committee tasked with oversight of the construction of a new football field on the new high school campus, or the renovation of the old Evers Field facility, the committee was updated on the current status of the project. It was the first meeting attended by the nine members of the public appointed to the committee at the last meeting.
Preliminary drawings for both the renovation plan and the new construction plan were shown to the new members, with both plans specifying the construction of a new field house and new bleachers. The construction plan includes two new sets of bleachers and a new fence around the facility, as well as a total of three new football fields--a main field as well as two 60 foot practice fields.
Officials hope that construction can begin this summer.
