The West Central School Board heard an update on several summer projects during their meeting Thursday night.

Superintendent Charles Mellon explained that the field lighting project is moving along. This project has been in discussion phases for several years, but now it is underway. The lighting should enhance the safety of staff and spectators at events at the football field.

The project includes replacing all of the wooden poles with only four metal poles. The wiring for the project will all be underground. The fixtures and light bulbs will be more energy efficient.

The board also discussed the fiscal year ended balances of all extra-curricular accounts. The board is currently preparing for next year’s budget where the Bus Replacement Plan and Capital Projects Plan were presented. A budget work session is set for Aug. 1.
