Bartow's three county high schools will have another way to entertain those attending home football games this fall.
The county school board on Monday, June 10, approved funding for the installation of new scoreboards with video screens at Adairsville, Cass and Woodland high schools’ athletic stadiums by the start of the football season.
Board members voted to approve use of $762,000 in special purpose local option sales tax (SPLOST) revenues for the replacement scoreboards, according to board records.
Officials believe the scoreboard parts of the signs will be installed and operating at the schools by each high school’s first 2019 home football game, said spokesperson Alisha Evans.
First home game dates range from Aug. 23 at Woodland to Sept. 6 at Cass, according to information from MaxPreps.
However, the digital or “video” portion of the scoreboard likely will not begin operating until sometime in September, Evans said.
Page recommended low bidder Miller-VuScor over two other companies for the project.
