At the September 15th regular Board of Education Meeting the Board approved a contract with Peterson Contractors, Inc for the installation of aggregate piers at site of the new Elementary School. The company will remove soft loose soil and replace it with columns of dense heavy rocks. These piers will help create a stable base on which the new Elementary School can be built. Work on the piers is expected to start within the next 30 days and take approximately 5-7 days to complete. During the installation of the piers workers may work during daylight hours on Saturday's and Sunday's. A picture of what the process will look like is below.
