School board hears concessions update
At the latest meeting of the Baltic School Board Oct. 8, superintendent Bob Sittig updated the group on progress on the new concessions/restroom facility.
With about 99 percent of the project completed, the building has been used at events at the track complex since the beginning of the school year.
“We have heard many positive comments from Baltic fans and visitors about our entire complex,” Sittig said. “Now if we could just get some rain so the newly planted grass would grow, it would help.”
The superintendent said that the most recent work done in the vicinity was landscaping to help bolster the “finished” look of the building.
“Weather permitting, volunteers may still pour additional concrete on the west side of the walkway from the street to the field, but if not this fall, then most likely next spring,” Sittig said.
Dells district sees supplemental additions
At the Oct. 8 meeting of the Dell Rapids School Board, business manager Barb Littel updated the group on recent supplemental budget additions.
