Lebanon schools progress with building projects

A contractor was approved for a project to construct a new building and grounds facility for the Lebanon Community School Corp. at the board of trustees’ meeting on Tuesday.

C.F. Jones submitted the lowest of six bids for the work and was selected for the job. Terry Lancer, of design firm Lancer & Beebe, said that though the bid was the lowest, it was also a responsible bid.

Bob Ross, LCSC executive director of resources and operations, said they have to bring final architectural plans and drawings to the Lebanon Planning and Zoning Department next month for final approval before they can actually break ground on the project. The plans must be presented at an Aug. 19 meeting.

The board began to discuss the project earlier this year, and school administration has been talking about it for longer than that, Ross said. The proximity of the current building and grounds facility to the high school is of some concern because it houses fuel tanks. So this approved project will include building a new facility behind the middle school, and turning the current building and grounds site into a new concession and restroom area for the football stadium.
