DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — Officials in Davenport have approved spending nearly $27 million for a new pool, auditorium and other improvements at the city's Central High School.
The Quad-City Times reports (http://bit.ly/12VSK5Q ) the Davenport Community School Board approved the spending Monday night.
The work will be funded by local sales tax revenue. Construction should begin by next spring.
When finished, the 106-year-old school will have a new 25-yard, eight-lane pool, an auditorium with seating for up to 900 people, new tennis courts and additional parking.
Although board members approved the work, there was disagreement about spending more than $1 million to add a warm-up/cool-down area at the pool for competitive swimmers.
