New high school’s cost now at $40 million

By By Clif Knight, Hartselle Enquirer
The rising cost of construction materials and labor has thrown Hartselle’s proposed new high school for a loop, according to an updated five-year capital improvement plan.
The school board approved the capital plan Monday night.
While the school plan is still at the top of a list of 16 separate capital projects, no funding source is available.
A funding plan was conceived a year ago when the city council agreed to pass a half-cent sales tax providing voters would approve an additional 7.5 mill property tax earmarked for the school. That proposal fell by the wayside last March when voters rejected the tax increase.
The capital plan calls for revenue totaling $42.3 million from 2009 through 2013.
Individual projects, in addition to a new high school, are listed by priority as follows:
Hartselle Junior High School (2011)—Re-roof south section of school building, $150,000.
