Work Continues at Almaguin Highlands Secondary School
Work is continuing on the Almaguin Secondary School project. It was stopped even though the schools open because the board came within $400,000 of going over budget on the $28 million project. Near North District School Board Chair Hewitt, says the board will be borrowing money from the reserves to pay for some outstanding items like a flag pole, road signage, theatre seating. lighting and sound and athletic equipment. She says they came in $400,000 under budget originally but wanted to ensure they wouldn’t go over budget and that money will be used to do work over the summer as well. She says a full report will be presented to the board in the fall.
