Improvements to the Roxy Theatre were approved at last week's Alta School Board meeting.
Three new windows will be installed in the front of the building, lending a more historical look to the theatre.
The Roxy Renovation Committee will also try to replace two exterior doors to also give a more historical look in the lobby if funds are available.
The cost of the work is estimated at $13,000; $1,750 is available from school funds/private donations and it is hoped $5,000 can be obtained from the BV County Foundation Grant. Superintendent Fred Maharry and Brad Nesbitt will attempt to raise additional private funds to help in the costs.
Discussion on making the building handicapped accessible and tuck pointing the building will continue.
Progress on improving the drainage from the area south and west of the middle school was also discussed.
Superintendent Maharry has talked with Chris Hogge of the Natural Resources Conservation Service and he was told that the area engineer will be able to assist with the project. Clay can be obtained from the building site at Summit Church across the street. The only hauling fee would be from hauling the clay across the street. An area to store the clay would need to be identified a nd a plan with all costs detailed will need to be drawn up before decisions can be made.
Several personnel recommendations were made and approved by the board:
* Heath Stille, seventh grade boys' basketball, at a cost of $1,150
* Natalie Potratz, seventh grade girls' basketball, at a cost of $1,380
* Nick Rotella, head wrestling, at a cost of $2,300
