Board makes final payment to builders of baseball field

The Letcher County Board of Education has approved the final payment to Elliott Contracting for the construction of the new baseball field at Letcher County Central High School.

The board originally approved a plan to build the baseball field at its July 2007 board meeting in hopes that the field would be ready to play baseball games on by spring of 2008.

A landscape architect with Sherman, Carter, Barnhart held off asking the board to pay Elliott Contracting the final payment until the project was completed.

At a special-called meeting held November 14, the board approved paying $142,900.67 to Elliott Contracting.

The board approved submission of a BG-4 form, which indicates substantial completion of the construction of the baseball field project. The total cost of the project is $1,308,436.71.
