School Board Approves Bids for Stadium Seating Expansion


The Knoxville School Board discussed the stadium seating expansion at their meeting last night. At the meeting the board approved bids for the Ken Locke Stadium seating expansion project. Pennie Sommar and Connie Husted expressed to the board that the Save Our Stadium committee does not have enough funds to cover the entire expansion at this time and plans to focus on the north side for the time being. The board approved bids from American Fence Company for chain link fencing, Creative Landscaping for sod and watering and Concrete Technologies for concrete. Sommar and Husted said they hope to secure more funds and be able to work on the south portion of the project following football season.
