Sioux City School Board looks to maintain schools

Posted:

Sioux City school leaders are considering borrowing money from a fund that is meant to build new schools, to keep the existing ones operating.

Monday night, the Sioux City Community School Board approved more than $1 million worth of work, which includes repairing roofs and parking lots.

Maintaining the roofs will cost just over $200,000. And the cost for parking lots? Around $370,000.

East High's parking lot has not been repaired in 16 years.

"Each year we have to borrow a little addition money out of that sales tax fund, which is really for new schools, to repair and maintain our existing schools," said Dr. Paul Gausman, Sioux City School District Superintendent.

A public hearing concerning the repairs is slated for the next school board meeting on February 25th at 6 P.M.
