You don't say.
The West Bend High Schools fitness center could cost up to $700,000 if prevailing wages and a sprinkler system is required, a subcommittee was told Wednesday. Of that, up to $220,000 would be funded with pubic (yes, this typo really DID happen!) money and the rest through private donors. One donor has committed to $250,000 already, and East Athletic Director Jeff Rondorf said he has a few other donors in the works. Paying prevailing wages is estimated to add $180,000 to the center’s cost, the Citizens Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC 2) was told. CFAC 2 hopes, though doubts, it may avoid paying prevailing wages since the completed facility will be owned for a short time by a private organization — the West Bend Public Schools Foundation — before it is given to the public school district.
