SSISD Approves Over $4 Million in Bids For Auditorium Renovation

During a special meeting at midday Friday June 26th, the Sulphur Springs Independent School District Board approved bids of just over four (4) million dollars for the renovation of the Regional Civic Center Auditorium. In return, the school district will receive a 35 year lease of the facility. The board met for over two hours as they considered bids from the construction manager for the third time in recent months. Bids had been postponed in two previous meetings due to the bids being higher than expected.

With the approval of the bids, work can now being on Monday June 29.  The Monday start will allow the work to begin on a previously approved schedule. Michael Lamb, SSISD Superintendent of schools, said the bids totaling just over four (4) million dollars were less than what had been originally hoped. The school board had hoped to spend only three (3) million dollars on the renovation. However, the additional money committed comes with a 35 year lease on the auditorium from the county.
