Field takes shape

CLINTON — Superintendent Jim Cox said the Northeast baseball field is starting to take shape.

Site work has been going on near the Northeast Elementary School location, where the baseball and softball fields will be located. Cox said the Edward Kleinschmidt’s crew almost has the baseball field at the needed elevation and the infield will be carved out next week.

The next step will be to bring the softball field up to the needed elevation.

“We’ve been busy,” Board Member Rich Krogman said.

Krogman added they intend to coordinate all of the trades. The building committee has meetings planned for fencing, seeding and sodding.

The baseball and softball fields are part of a larger $7 million facilities project that was part of a bond referendum in April. This includes a new science wing, gymnasium and athletic facilities.

Krogman expects work on the building site to start soon. Cox said they will not pour foundation until spring, but will ask crews to do cement work for the pillar for the gymnasium, so they can start with steel.

Krogman said this project will be done opposite as the Fine Arts Center. The steel in the gym will be built first, with the concrete foundation done after. This will allow them to continue through the winter.

The board approved a contract Wednesday with Kleinschmidt for site work at a cost of $467,000 and approved the first payment of $176,404 for site work at the ball fields. A 15 percent cash bond of $70,050.15 from him was accepted in lieu of insurance.
