After a round of negotiations, the school board has awarded the 
contract for construction of a track and soccer field to Precision 
Construction Companies of Lone Jack, Missouri.
    The company was one of the two bidders who submitted proposals for 
the construction project, but bids from both came in much higher than 
anticipated.
    At that point, Superintendent Wayne Roberts entered competitive 
negotiations with the companies to try to get the price of the 
project within a more reasonable scope.
    During a special meeting of the school board on July 23, the group 
was informed that Precision Construction had submitted a bid of 
$602,714.20.
    The board awarded the company bid package number two for the project.
    Also during the meeting, the board approved a trip for the Wayne 
County High School Band to travel to Murfreesboro, Tenn. to watch Drum Corps International.
