CLOVERDALE -- The Cloverdale School Board heard updates on its greenhouse from Dan Sulkoske and maintenance from Jeff Underwood during the regular meeting Monday.
Sulkoske informed the board about the delayed delivery of the greenhouse. It pushed the completion date back by one week, even though the delivery was three weeks late.
"Things are moving along well," Sulkoske said.
The greenhouse is looking to be completed around Sept. 21 with no further complications.
Underwood told board members about maintenance done at all three buildings -- elementary, middle and high schools. There are new lockers in the varsity and physical education locker rooms. There are new showers, which are low-force showerheads.
"We went from 3 gallons of water per minute to 1.5 gallons," said Underwood.
The scoreboard has been rewired and may be getting an outside makeover. Underwood also discussed the re-skinning of the Morton building behind the concession stands.
He said it would be more cost effective to have the building re-skinned to look like the concession stand than to have it repainted. Painting contractors, who would paint the building, wouldn't stand behind the paintwork, he continued.
Additionally, Underwood noted new light fixtures in the high school near the locker rooms and on the football field. He talked about the south parking lot, which is in poor condition and needs to have a new topcoat and be resealed.
He encouraged the board to take a look at its condition.
