Security expenditure clarified
Houston County Courier

By Lynda Jones

In the Dec. 19 issue of the Houston County Courier, the story, "Latexo ISD acts to upgrade security", reported on the school board's Dec. 16 vote regarding security upgrades. The board approved hiring architects (Goodwin- Lasiter) to draw plans for the redesign of the campus entrances, which will cost between $7,000-$10,000. Superintendent Don Elsom clarified this expendture is for the architects only, not the construction of the redesign, application of protective film to the glass at the entrances or the windows, or rekeying the buildings for the use of card keys. The district estimated $250,000 for all the security upgrades when it asked voters to approve a bond in February. This architectural fee is just one component within that original estimate.
