Two costly repairs needed at local schools
WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Waynesboro Area School District learned this week about costly repairs needed at two elementary school buildings.
Maintenance Supervisor Jeff Adams said a rusty cooling tower at Fairview Elementary School and a condensing unit at Hooverville Elementary School are beyond repair.
If the equipment isn't fixed, the schools won't have air conditioning in the spring, Business Administrator Caroline Dean said.
The 22-year-old condensing unit leaked refrigerant twice this fall, at a rate that constitutes an Environmental Protection Agency violation, Adams said.
He said a new cooling tower would cost about $60,000 and the condensing unit about $75,000.
The school board asked administrators to present information next week about where the money would be found in the budget.
