The parking lot at the Coffee County Central High School will soon see a facelift. The Coffee County Board of Education approved on June 8 a bid from Tinsley Asphalt.

Coffee County Schools received two bids: from Tinsley Asphalt and Rogers Group.

The board approved the bid from Tinsley Asphalt for the amount of $215,766. The approximate total of Rogers Group was about $227,000.

The parking renovation project includes $3,500 for milling work, $199,768 for all the parking, $2,152 for the drive between the circle and the faculty parking and $10,346 for striping.

“We are asking for approval of the total project,” said Director of Coffee County Schools Dr. Charles Lawson.

The board was also invited to consider approving $220,000 instead of $215,766, in case the project required any additional funding.

But board member Pat Barton requested for the contract to include an exact number and not exceed the approved amount of $215,766.
