Within the next month foundation work at the auditorium will begin, dirt work on the road to the softball restroom/concession building will start as well as foundation work and electrical underground at the new parking lot.

Site utility work is ongoing at the ag building and within the next month, pad and parking areas will be separated to prep for those.

For Gilbert Intermediate, fire suppression is completed in the first two areas of the classroom, the fire line/fire department connection lines have been completed to the road and sanitary and sewer lines have been completed.

“They’re taking a group of classrooms in coordination with Mr. Sauceda to focus on that area, get that complete and move on to the next so that will continue throughout the project installing those new lines in the building,” Cogburn said.

Upcoming work within the next month for Gilbert Intermediate includes grading and continuing the fire suppression scope.
