Neglected schools receive needed maintenance

March 9, 2012

MUSKEGO, WI — Two schools once on the brink of closure are set to receive some much needed maintenance work this year, according to Muskego Now.

Muskego Elementary and Tess Corners Elementary, the two oldest buildings in the Muskego-Norway School District, need upwards of $8.6 million in collective repairs to make them viable centers of learning, the story stated.

Necessary repairs that have been deferred for some time include things like roof repairs, floor repairs and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) work, the story noted.

According to the article, the Muskego-Norway School Board will vote on how much money to delegate for repairs at a meeting slated for March 19.

Because the district is limited to its $400,000 annual maintenance budget, plus an additional $2 million over the next two years that can be lifted from an emergency fund, the projects will have to be prioritized, the story added.
