Newell-Fonda school board elects Scheidegger as president
The Newell-Fonda school board held their monthly meeting on September 12th. The board elected Kyle Scheidegger as president, and Roger Sarchet as vice-president for the 2016-2017 school year.
The Newell-Fonda school board is planning a major renovation of their athletic facilities next spring. At Monday's meeting, Brad Beck of Beck Engineering in Spirit Lake presented the preliminary plans for the project. Beck provided updates on costs. In a separate workshop, the board discussed ways to save money on the contract, including bidding some of the smaller projects locally.
The board also discussed the annual baseball/softball field rental agreement with the city of Fonda. Scheidegger will attend next month's Fonda City Council meeting to discuss the subject.
