County schools get state money for repairs

April 22, 1993|By John A. Morris | John A. Morris,Staff Writer

Students at several county schools will be warm and dry next year thanks to the state Board of Public Works, which approved $3.2 million for repairs and construction of Anne Arundel County schools.

The money is part of a $41.9 million statewide package.

The money for Anne Arundel County includes $1.6 million for roof repairs and heating and air conditioning units at seven public schools.

Another $1.6 million will go toward building a $10 million elementary school on Solley Road. The county will finance the bulk of the construction, which should begin this year, said Greg Nourse, a county budget analyst.

The money approved yesterday comes in addition to $1.4 million previously set aside by the state for construction of a new Meade Heights Elementary School and repairs to Southern Senior High and Tyler Heights Elementary.

A county request for state money to build an elementary school in Deale was denied, Mr. Nourse said. However, the county will move forward with construction this year and seek reimbursement from the state next year, he said.

The schools that are to receive portions of the money for repairs are West Meade, Glen Burnie Park, Pasadena, Rippling Woods and Manor View elementary schools; Chesapeake Bay Middle School; and Severna Park High School.
