“The natatorium, which was included in the original design of the project as an add alternate, was a part of the education SPLOST approved by the voters in 2010,” said Don Hood, Calhoun City Schools’ Finance Director.
The school board approved an adjustment of about $4.8 million to the contracted guaranteed maximum price of the project, Hood said.
“This includes approximately $3.4 million for the construction of the natatorium,” he said. “Other major adjustments included constructing a covered walkway between buildings B and C, improving the asphalt track included in the base bid to include the installation of a polyurethane track surface and an improved drainage system; plus funding several smaller improvements.
“The adjustment also includes $475,000 for future contingencies,” he added. “These contingency funds will only be spent if necessary.”
