New bus barn in the works
By Alyssa Schafer
One of the Underwood school board’s first projects this year will be the planning and construction of a new bus barn. The approximately $150,000 project will be built on school property, Underwood School Superintendent Dale Ekstrom said. Precursory schematics for the bus barn put the building at approximately 48 feet by 124 feet. The garage that currently stands south of the elementary school might be torn down to provide more space for the new structure, Ekstrom said. The school is working to develop specifications and will eventually put the project out for bids to develop prices.
