Costly expenses to fix up Franklin Elementary School

MOLINE - Members of the Moline-Coal Valley school board got an idea how much money it will take to fix Franklin Elementary School.

 

It's been a month and a half since a fire damaged the school. Crews have been removing asbestos and getting the fire alarm system up to code. Board members got rough estimates for the cost upgrades like a new lighting system at tonight's meeting.

 

That could run up to $2.5 million dollars. Board members say it will be tough to prioritize what's needed.

 

"They’re very engaged in trying to put the best in that school as possible given the timeline and cost restraints, " said Moline-Coal Valley School District's Chief Financial.

 

Franklin Elementary School is expected to reopen in time for the next school year.
