With its approval of a package of bids and a change order, the Washington County Board of Education pushed the total value of approved work for the proposed Mike Callas Stadium to $3,315,077 Tuesday, according to information provided by school system spokeswoman Carol Mowen.

The board unanimously approved $336,385 in bids for a hydraulic elevator, restrooms, lighting and field electric services at North Hagerstown High School.

The board also approved a change order for $39,750 for the installation of field drains at the stadium, which is scheduled for completion in August or September. According to information provided to the board, the drains were shown on the original bidding documents, but they were not included in materials for the site contractor.

Facilities Management Director Rod Turnbough said Wednesday that adding the drains after awarding other contracts likely did not add any cost to the project. Turnbough said the drains, which are for the perimeter of the field, will not affect what type of field the board can install at the stadium.

The board on Tuesday heard an offer for a donation of $250,000 for naming rights to the field as long as the field is artificial turf instead of grass.
