TONICA — The west side parking lot at Tonica’s school could soon see expansion.
Discussion regarding the state of the school’s west parking lot is not new to the district, as the topic has been raised in the past.
However, with estimated numbers for various possible variations on the project, the board returned to the subject at its recent meeting.
According to Al Leffelman, board president, the expansion would help create a situation so that “people aren’t parking in grass and nasty gravel,” specifically on the north side of the lot.
The district is planning to purchase the materials, for which the Tonica Parent-Teacher Committee has committed to cover half the cost up to $8,000.
Then the school will work with qualified volunteers to complete the project.
The project is expected to commence in June or July.
The board is seeking an individual to fill an open seat. Interested parties are asked to contact Principal-Superintendent Chuck Schneider at 815-442-3420.
Applications must be picked up from the office and are due back by May 8.
