Come fall, students at Findlay High School will notice a nearly $2.5 million difference.
The high school’s entrance will be upgraded this summer with a security door, cameras, and a new office that anyone entering after school has started will have to go through.
The school board on Monday accepted a bid for the project from Thomas & Marker Construction of Bellefontaine. The bid, of close to $2.5 million, was the second-lowest after one from Telamon Construction, Sandusky.
The district decided to go with Thomas & Marker after having problems with Telamon Construction during the construction of Millstream Career Center, Superintendent Dean Wittwer said.
The project, one of the district’s last remaining school entrance updates, will start this summer and finish sometime in October or November, Wittwer said.
Courier reporter Max Filby will have more on Tuesday.
