School begins stadium light replacement
The new LED lights rise high above the ground, ready to light the way for fans and players.
GRANT CITY, Mo. — At the Worth County R-III Board of Education meeting held on Aug. 16, the board made the decision to increase the budget for the stadium light installation by $20,000. Even with the new addition, notes from the meeting indicate that the installation is still the cheapest option that the board could find on the market.
This budget update comes after finalizing the plans for the electrical work that will need to be done in tandem with the stadium lights, which includes the press box, play clock, scoreboard, storage shed and electrical outlets. This, plus the updated budget, will ensure that the lighting in and around the stadium will be installed and will function to the best of its ability.
Workers climb high to install the lights on the side of the press box.
Crews began installing new LED lights last week, replacing the old stadium lights, which were damaged in a storm. The new lights will come in alongside repairs to the parking lot outside the stadium.
