Storm Lake School Board Approves Baseball Field Turf Replacement ; New Bus Purchase

The Storm Lake School Board this week approved plans for replacing the turf at the baseball field.

The backstop netting will also be replaced, and netting will be added in front of the dugouts.

The total cost of the project is more than 412-thousand dollars. The Storm Lake district will be responsible for 55-percent of the project, and will be paid from the PPEL Fund. Buena Vista University, which also uses the field, will cover the remaining 45-percent.

The board also approved the purchase of a new 84-passenger school bus at a total cost of over 150-thousand dollars, counting the deduction of seven-thousand dollars that the district is getting back for trading in a 2012 bus.

The new bus will be delivered after July 1st, and is being paid for through PPEL or Sales Tax.
