School district approves work

Geothermal work and a mechanical upgrade at Skaha Lake Middle School are the top items on the school district’s summertime maintenance list.

The Okanagan Skaha School District has a $1.2-million annual facilities grant from the B.C. government for its summer work plan.

It’s expected that will include tying in Skaha Lake Middle School to the geothermal heating system installed last year at nearby Princess Margaret Secondary School.

Other top priorities this summer include: electrical upgrades at Giant’s Head and Columbia Elementaries; roofing repairs at Carmi Elementary and other sites; gym floor refinish at Summerland Secondary; exterior improvements at ConnectEd building; and parking lot and access work at Giant’s Head

About two dozen items are on the to-do list. Most of the work will be put out to tender.
