Bids to build an auxiliary gymnasium addition to the Lapeer West High School campus were approved Thursday, March 05, 2009, at the Board of Education meeting.
Michigan construction firms were the winners of a dozen bids totaling $1,001,807.77. The bids were approved for the construction and finishing touches to the new gymnasium at West. Construction on the gymnasium is scheduled to start in late April with completion at the start of classes in September 2009.
The 12 successful low bidders were all from the southeast Michigan region.
