When Polk County High School staff and students arrive for the first day of school Aug. 26 they’ll arrive to an updated look for the school’s football field, track and tennis courts.
As of this week, about a month before school is set to return, Stott’s Paving has repaved the track and tennis courts.
“They’ve resodded places on the football field that were damaged so it looks like they are moving along,” said Principal Mary Feagan.
The Polk County School Board of Education in April selected Stott’s to complete the project for about $320,000.
Work began on the project just after graduation and should be complete before the start of the 2013-2014 year. The previous track lasted almost two decades, according to Superintendent Bill Miller.
