SWEETWATER-The Sweetwater City School System's building projects are going wide open and speeding toward the finish line.

"We are really, really close," architect Sam Moser told Sweetwater Board of Education members at the November board meeting.

Brown Intermediate School is getting a new office configuration, and the walkways enclosed between the buildings. A new cooler for the lunchroom is already operational.

A new Central Office building is also nearing completion next to the junior high. The new administration building will allow main central office staff to centralize in one building and will free up Sweetwater City Hall for city officials.

The School Board awarded Rouse Construction both projects for about just under $2 million.

The target completion dates are early in 2013 for both projects with the emphasis placed on Brown School first to make things easier for students and teachers, who have been dealing with the construction all year albeit in a very positive manner, Principal David Matlock has said. | 337-7101
