Some money will be moved around in Bethel on two school construction projects. The Rockwell and Johnson school renovations are moving ahead at the same time, but are considered separate projects.
The Public Site and Building Committee this week said Johnson's work is $1.6 million under budget while Rockwell is $1.2 million over budget. The project needed unexpected PCB abatement.
The overall combined budget approved by voters is $65.8 million. 45 percent of eligible costs for the renovations will be covered by state reimbursement.
Construction is expected to start in the spring and be completed by December 2020. The committee is slated to meet next week on a proposal locking in the maximum price for renovations. Various features the committee could add if money allows are also being considered.
