Wolf Point School District trustees approved some of the needed repairs to the Wolf Point High School gym during the monthly school board meeting Monday, April 13.
The board unanimously approved a $62,900 contract Friesen Construction of Wolf Point for minor improvements to the gymnasium ceiling, walls and locker rooms.
Trustees Ed Bach and Tracy Juve-Miranda were absent from the meeting.
Improvements include new ceiling tiles; priming and painting walls in the gym, stairwell walls, hallway and locker room areas; applying a mold and mildew resistant epoxy-coat on the concrete floors in the locker rooms, landings, steps and hallway downstairs; and diamond grinding concrete floors to remove all sealers and waxes that have been applied over the years.
The trustees approved funding for the gym ceiling during the last fiscal year. Seventy-five percent of the cost will come from the High School Building Reserve Fund and 25 percent from remaining Elementary Capital Investment and Deferred Maintenance one-time-only grant funds.
School board chairman Martin DeWitt cited safety issues with the ceiling as a need for the work.
The gym, which also needs a new floor and bleachers, will begin its 47th school year of use in August. It was built during the late 1960s along with the rest of the junior and senior high school following a fire that destroyed the original high school in 1967. The current school and gym were opened in 1969.
The cost of a complete gym fix has been estimated at nearly $400,000.
Superintendent Joe Paine acknowledged the Wolf Point Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture for recent fundraising activities for the gym floor. He also said there will be an effort to push passage of a levy for the gym on the 2016 school district ballot.
Voters rejected a proposed levy for the gym floor and high school parking lot in last year’s election.
