The Dale County Schools superintendent recommends spending nearly seven-million dollars on renovating some area schools.
Last night, board members voted on a plan to spend a total of seven million dollars in renovating the Dale County Schools.
Those renovations include re-roofing a building at Midland City Elementary and getting rid of portable classrooms at George W. Long Schools.
The plan also included, renovating restrooms at Ariton School, Newton Elementary School and South Dale Middle School as well as replacing 11 air conditioner units with heat pumps at South Dale and paving student parking lot at Dale County High School.
Superintendent Parker's suggestion was to add an additional 4 and a half million in bonds to the 2.5 million in state appropriation money to improve a school with many concerns.
The money to pay for the bond would come from state capital outlay money and leaving a balance of $150,000 a year for capital projects.
A vote was taken Monday night. Two members were in favor of the proposal two members abstained from voting and one was absent.
So the recommendation ultimately failed.
