Polk County Enterprise - June 2008
LIVINGSTON — Trustees for Livingston Independent will tackle the fi rst in a long line of decisions related to construction of a new high school campus and other renovations approved by voters in May. Details on those plans will be discussed during the board’s monthly meeting scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Administration Building at 1412 South Houston Street in Livingston. The board will hear reports from fi nancial adviser Doug Witt and review plans for fi - nancing construction as well as a schedule for issuing the fi rst installment of bonds through Southwest Securities.
Trustees will also hear reports from architect Kevin Smith and construction manager Jim Kingham during Monday’s meeting. A Memorial List of Honor containing the names and graduation dates of many former Livingston High School students who made the supreme sacrifi ce during World War II will be presented to the board Monday as well. Livingston High School alumni and retired Air Force Colonel Cannon Pritchard prepared the list from surviving records in newspapers, the Polk County Memorial Museum and friends and relatives of the military personnel.

Trustees also will receive information on concessions and restroom buildings located at the football fi eld during Monday’s meeting.
