Dropped Legal Challenge Springs School Construction Forward

Karen Snyder, K2 Radio

Dropping its lawsuit against the Wyoming School Facilities Commission means Natrona County School District can stay on track and on budget as it moves forward with school construction.

The district was challenging the state commission’s refusal to offer reimbursement for KW pool repairs and NC artificial turf replacement. That pending legal challenge meant the district’s multiple construction projects were on hold.

“Our high school projects have been on hold for almost 11 months. The state has already determined that the inflation is going to be 4 percent per year and the inflation is just gonna eat up our construction money.”

School Board Vice Chair, Don McCall says for every year of delay it would increase construction costs by another $9.4 million.

For now, McCall says, the district will absorb the pool repair and turf costs, but he hopes the question of what constitutes an enhancement vs educational need comes up again for re-definition by the School Facilities Commission.
