USD 445 School Board, during their regularly scheduled monthly meeting, approves the bid from Heartland Seating for bleacher replacement in the basketball gym at Field Kindley High School. Assistant Superintendent Michael Speer says they are the original bleachers from when the gym was built in the 1970s.
Speer says there are also some safety concerns with the railings both leading up the bleachers and between the bleachers and mezzanine. The new bleachers would also allow access from the gym floor all the way up to the mezzanine. The bid was for just over $168k and was voted 7-0 in approval by the board members.
