Bethel locks in school project costs to avoid going over budget

The project is under the $65.8 million budget voters approved for both schools in 2017, with Rockwell costing $25.9 million and Johnson costing $39.5 million. A state grant is covering 45 percent of eligible costs of the project. The Public Site and Building Committee recently approved construction company Rizzo Corporation’s proposal for the guaranteed maximum price of the project. This agreement promises the construction company can complete the project within budget and estimates work will be done by Dec. 1, 2020.
