A 6-0 vote by the Milford Area Public School (MAPS #124) District Board of Education Friday is moving the new school construction project forward.
In special session, the board accepted the latest bids for the project. Construction of the new high school and grade school remodeling project should be underway in the next couple weeks, according to Superintendent Dale Hastings (Hey- stings).
Hastings said there was a public question about the project being smaller than first presented. Hastings said "it's not smaller...the specs are all the same, same square footage; there were material changes only to save money."
Equipment could be in place over the next two weeks. Earth work may be started in 3-4 weeks.
Milford area voters approved the $17-million construction period in a building referendum in 2015.
