Marion County Commission votes to extend site prep at tech school

Posted: Updated:

KIMBALL, Tenn. — When officials discovered in August that there would be $242,000 in leftover grant money on Marion County's career and technical school project in Kimball, they had to find a way to spend it.

The project's construction manager, Dillard Construction Inc. in Dayton, Tenn., recommended a $358,000 change order so county leaders could use the extra money on further site preparation for future construction.

The Marion County Commission voted unanimously on Monday to add an extra $116,000 to the project's budget to complete the site preparation for the first building, which is currently under construction, and four more future structures.
