School may be out for summer, but districts are hard at work completing construction projects ahead of the upcoming school year.
The Hannibal School District is currently upgrading the HVAC system for their career and technical center as well as the high school.
Superintendent Susan Johnson said this is Phase 1 of the project. She said it was made possible thanks to voters passing a bond issue for $14.5 million earlier this year.
“Trying to do as much work as we can this summer, so we are not interrupting any instruction, so we are just capitalizing on that and getting ready for August, ” Johnson said. “So when our students come back we can have a great start to the school year.”
Crews were busy Thursday morning building stairs leading to the tennis court.
Hannibal School District Business Manager Rich Stilley said the tennis court was resurfaced and painted.
“It will be beneficial to everyone involved in the Hannibal School District from our faculty, to our staff, students, patrons, when they come into the building and it will be a better use of tax payer dollars as well,” Stilley said.
More projects include electrical upgrades, plumbing, duct work, new domestic waterlines and water source heat pump water lines.
Stilley added the district hopes to have most of the indoor work done by the end of summer but they will continue other projects into the fall.
