Yoga studio finds flexibility

Christina Allenís yoga and dance studio, Drishti School of Dance & Fitness, was granted permission by the school board to expand as it grows. The studio will now occupy an extra room across the hall from the one itís currently using on the third floor of the old Alta High School. Opened in March 2018, the studio is one of several occupants that have thrived in the old building, including a daycare center, a gym, and an area used for mixed martial arts practice.

New cameras

With proximity card readers up and running everywhere, Superintendent Lynn Evans said they are interested in expanding with cameras outside of the high school to the elementary school. Costs were estimated at $6,920, with future approval pending its addition to the the school board agenda.

Lawn spraying

Lawn spraying needs will be taken care of through Mikeís Lawn Service now, as previous servicer Bunjes is no longer providing it. Costs were estimated at about $3,500 for applications of fertilizer, with an extra $2,600 for preventative grub control.
