The New Era - All about Sweet Home since 1929

School district progressing with auditorium seismic upgrades


August 15, 2017

PROJECT SUPERINTENDENT Mark Speelman takes a phone call as Waylon Lundin of Dallas cuts lumber on the roof of the SHHS Auditorium.

Seismic upgrades in the Sweet Home High School auditorium are well under way and on time, and the Sweet Home School District planned to sell $4 million in bonds this week with construction beginning next year.

“Right now, if all goes according to plan, the bond sale will be this coming Tuesday, Aug. 15,” said Business Manager Kevin Strong. Standard and Poor’s has updated the district’s credit rating to A+, which should result in a lower interest rate on the bond sale.

“That basically means we’ll be able to pay it off sooner,” Strong said. “We’ll see on Tuesday.”
